Welcome to Bruins Nation’s opponent preview series for the UCLA Bruins 2018 football season! Each week we will be taking a look at an upcoming opponent this year, examine their strengths and weaknesses, and make a bold prediction regarding the outcome.
This week, we take a look at UCLA’s Week 6 opponent: the Washington Huskies.

After the highs of 2016, it was pretty clear Washington was going to take something of a step back last year, and that’s what happened, as the Huskies ended up at 10-3. Even then, though, it’s not like the Huskies were bad. A fluke loss on the road to Arizona State kept them out of the Pac-12 Conference Title Game, and had the Huskies won both of those games (which would have been against a highly-ranked USC team) they would have had a solid case to make a return trip to the College Football Playoffs.
