When Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian's team, especially on the defensive side of the ball, takes the field against his old team, they're going to be tested in a big way.
The Huskies will come into the matchup with the nation's top-ranked passing offense.
"These guys can light up the scoreboard quickly. You know Mike Penix. I got a chance to watch them a few different times play. And he throws it all over the place. They've got great receivers. A really good offensive line. And they run the ball effectively. But it's a very dynamic passing game. And a very, very disruptive front defensively. You know they get after the quarterback. Really well coached. You know I know this about the University of Washington. There's a lot of pride in that program. Great history and tradition. Great fan base. So, it's going to be a heck of a challenge for us," said Sark.
The Horns and Huskies will hook up on Dec. 29 at 8 p.m. at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
