College Football Top 25 Rankings: Washington

Here's why: Petersen enters 2019 as the unquestioned No. 1 coach in the Pac-12. After a 15-12 start to his tenure in Seattle, the Huskies have won at least 10 games and played in a New Year’s Six bowl in each of the last three years. Petersen has guided Washington to two Pac-12 titles and a trip to the CFB Playoff in 2016. Success at a high level is nothing new for Petersen. He went 92-12 over eight years at Boise State from 2006-13). During Petersen’s 13 seasons as a head coach, only three of those saw his team win fewer than 10 games.
