In an early-season Pac-12 road test, the No. 10 Washington Huskies (1-1) head east to take on the Utah Utes (2-0) on Saturday night.
The game is scheduled to start at 10:00 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including all the ESPN channels. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
ESPN and ESPN 2 are both included in the “Sling Orange” channel package. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.
If you can’t watch live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on.
Additionally, you can also watch a live stream of the game on your computer via ESPN.com, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the ESPN app. You’ll need to log in to a cable provider to watch this way, but if you don’t have that, you can still sign up for one of the above options and then use your Hulu or Sling TV credentials to sign in and watch on the ESPN digital platforms.
Huskies head coach Chris Petersen understands the kind of environment his team will be facing, and is preparing for the challenge.
“It’s as good as anywhere we’ve been. It’s how college football should be. It’ll be a packed house. Those night games – any time you’re on the road in a night game and a packed stadium, it’s a really energized environment.”
In 2016, John Ross was a hero in a 31-24 victory for the Huskies. Last season, Utah headed northwest and almost stunned Washington until Jake Browning and Myles Gaskin took over late to seal a narrow 33-30 win. The come-from-behind win was one of the Huskies’ trademark victories of 2017, despite not fulfilling their ultimate goal of getting back to the College Football Playoff, where they went in 2016.
In order for the Huskies to defeat the Utes, they have to take care of the football. Losing the turnover battle is the last thing a Peterson-coached team wants to do, and that starts with Browning.
The senior has already thrown three interceptions in two games this season, and surprisingly did a better job of taking care of the football in the Huskies’ season-opening loss against Auburn than he did against North Dakota (two interceptions) a week ago.
Gaskin also needs to get going. He has 128 total rushing yards and a touchdown in two combined games. Again, like Browning, Gaskin was underwhelming against North Dakota, finishing with just 53 yards on 15 carries; he did score, though.
Junior quarterback Tyler Huntley leads Utah against Browning. Huntley had a four-touchdown performance in a 41-10 opening win against Weber State, but cooled off a bit last week in a 17-6 win against Northern Illinois despite throwing for more yards (286) than the week prior (279).
