Washington has beaten Utah 10 of the 11 times they’ve played, including the past two contests in one-possession games after the Utes picked up their only win against the Huskies in 2015.

Like the past two meetings, Washington (1-1) comes to Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday ranked, at No. 10 in the Associated Press poll and No. 12 in the Coaches Poll.
