Washington Huskies Preview: 24 FBS Championship vs. Michigan


College football fans can’t have a better matchup in Monday’s Championship game as the Washington Huskies and Michigan Wolverines are undefeated with 14-0 records in 2023. This is a historic season for both teams, regardless of the outcome. Like last week’s Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl, we expect a close game. Here is a detailed look at UW’s opponents in the National Championship Game

The maize and blue average 36 points a game while giving up a stingy 10.21. It won’t be easy for the Washington Huskies, but they haven’t let difficulties stop them often this season.

Michigan hasn’t seen anything like the Washington Huskies offense, which averages 350 yards in the air per game. UM’s defensive coaches have their hands full planning for Washington’s trio of top-tier receivers, Rome Odunze, Jalen McMillan, and Ja’Lynn Polk.

Washington Huskies – Michigan Wolverines History

These schools have played some exciting games against each other. The series didn’t start out well for the Washington Huskies, with Michigan winning the first four games (1953, 1954, 1969, and 1970) by a combined score of 116-10.

Since then, the Washington Huskies are 5-4 against UM.

The teams faced each other four times in the Rose Bowl, with each school winning twice. Most notable was the 1978 game. On January 2, 1978, the Huskies pulled out a 27-20 win. In that one, UW quarterback Warren Moon was named as the most valuable player.

Their last meeting was in Ann Harbor, with Michigan winning 31-10 on September 11, 2021. It happened during the short-lived Jimmy Lake head coach era at UW. The Washington Huskies have come a long way since then.

In 2022, Kalen DeBoer’s first season as head coach, U-Dub went 11-2. Hopes are high in Montlake for an undefeated 14-0 season. Here’s what the Washington Huskies are up against in Monday’s National Championship Game.
