SEATTLE (AP) — One of Steve Sarkisian's biggest accomplishments since arriving at Washington is making a trip to a bowl game a regular thing again.
It's getting beyond the plateau of seven wins that has eluded the Huskies in Sarkisian's four previous seasons.
The Huskies can become bowl eligible with one win in their final four games, a stretch that begins on Saturday with Washington hosting Colorado. But the game holds more importance for the Huskies (5-3, 2-3 Pac-12) if they are to finally leap past the seven-win rut they've been stuck in.
Colorado (3-5, 0-5) enters Saturday having lost 13 straight conference games since beating Washington State 35-34 on Sept. 22, 2012. Twelve of the 13 losses have been by at least 20 points, including a 38-3 setback against Washington last season.
