Washington lost coach Steve Sarkisian to USC earlier this week, but the Huskies moved quickly in finding his replacement.
Boise State coach Chris Petersen has been hired by Washington to replace Sarkisian, ending an eight-year run with the Broncos.
During his tenure with Boise State, Petersen went 92-12 and won 57 conference games. The Broncos also played in two BCS bowls under Petersen’s watch.
Have confirmed ESPN's reports that Chris Petersen is leaving Boise State for Washington. Our evolving story: http://t.co/J68YHj3zlp— Brian Murphy (@murphsturph) December 6, 2013

Washington quarterback Keith Price was forced to exit Friday’s loss to UCLA with a shoulder injury, and his status for next week’s game against Oregon State is uncertain.
Price’s x-ray was negative, but the senior will have a MRI performed to discover the extend of the injury.
Price left during the first half, but prior to his injury, the senior completed 10 of 18 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown.
In his absence, Cyler Miles completed 15 of 22 throws for 149 yards and two touchdowns. If Price cannot play, Miles would get the start next week.

In episode 2 of the Athlon Sports Cover 2 Podcast, Braden Gall and David Fox talk about the ups and downs from the first week of games, plus a quick lookahead for Week 2.
Our topics in this episode:
• What was impressive about Clemson’s 38-35 win over Georgia and what would constitute of the Tigers’ patented letdowns.
• Where does Georgia go from here with South Carolina in Week 2 and why
we’re concerned about fatigue in the second week of September.
• A quick pass through the Johnny Manziel drama of the weekend: Why Braden is tired of the coverage and why David is craving more.
• Why Washington was the biggest statement win of the weekend.
• A request for really, really upset Georgia fans to contact the podcast.
• Why David changed his pick from Miami to Florida ahead of this week’s game and why Braden is feeling a little more confident about Miami, but still picking the Gators.
• In a not-so-cleverly named segment, our hosts each pick an overlooked game for Week 2 they’re going to watch.
The podcast can be found on athlonsports.com and our RSS feed. And coming soon to iTunes.
Thanks to Moon Taxi for sharing their tunes for bumper music. Their new album Mountains Beaches Cities will be available Sept. 10.

Washington has a huge game against Boise State on Saturday night, and it appears the Huskies will be without one of their top weapons. According to Adam Jude of The Seattle Times, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be suspended for the opener.
The junior pled guilty to a drunk driving charge in July and was forced to pay a $695 fine and spend one night in jail. Seferian-Jenkins will be missed against Boise State, especially after he caught six passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in the bowl loss to the Broncos.
In his first two years at Washington, Seferian-Jenkins caught 110 passes for 1,390 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Seferian-Jenkins is the No. 1 tight end in college football, and his suspension is a huge blow to a Washington offense that hopes to get back on track after finishing ninth in the Pac-12 in scoring offense last year.

The Washington-Boise State non-conference game in Week 1 is one of the most-anticipated games of the 2013 college football season. Unfortunately, the Huskies could be shorthanded for that contest.
Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins suffered a fracture in his right pinkie in practice on Monday. The junior will have to have surgery and his status for Week 1 is uncertain.
Not having Seferian-Jenkins in the lineup would be a huge setback for Washington’s offense. The Huskies still have quarterback Keith Price, running back Bishop Sankey and receiver Kasen Williams, but Seferian-Jenkins is the nation’s top tight end and would be a difficult matchup for Boise State’s defense. In the Las Vegas Bowl against the Broncos last year, Seferian-Jenkins caught six passes for 61 yards and one touchdown.
The season opener for Washington is a huge contest, especially since it will feature the rebuilt Husky Stadium and should give some insight into just how far this program has progressed under coach Steve Sarkisian. Needless to say, beating Boise State and getting off to a good start would relieve some of the pressure on this coaching staff.
Sarkisian hoping ASJ out for only "days" not weeks, but UW coach said he'd know more later this week.— Adam Jude (@A_Jude) August 13, 2013

Washington’s Husky Stadium was demolished after the 2011 season, forcing the Huskies to spend a year at the Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field for 2012.
However, Husky Stadium is rebuilt and ready to go for kickoff on Aug. 31 against Boise State. Don’t believe me? Check out the photo below.
Husky Stadium’s official twitter account (@HuskyStadium) posted this photo recently, showcasing the rebuilt and improved stadium for 2013.

New uniforms and helmets are the biggest craze in college football.
Teams are unveiling different looks throughout the offseason, and it seems one of the newest variations is a chrome helmet.
Baylor unveiled a gold helmet earlier this year, and Washington could be joining the crowd with a chrome look for 2013.
The school hasn’t officially announced anything about the helmet, but the chrome variation would be a sharp look for the Huskies.
Here's a look at the chrome helmet, tweeted by @TysonLossness
Personally, I love the chrome helmet. A big part of the helmet/uniform craze is to help catch the attention of recruits, and there's no question this look would be a sharp addition to one of the Pac-12's best uniform combinations.
