The Washington Huskies football team represents the University of Washington located in Seattle, Washington. The Huskies are a member of the NCAA FBS Pacific-12 Conference and play their home games at Husky Stadium in Seattle. The Huskies are currently coached by Jimmy Lake.

Washington has won 17 conference championships, seven Rose Bowls, and four national championships recognized by NCAA-designated major selectors.[2][3] The school's all-time record ranks 20th by win percentage and 19th by total victories among FBS schools as of 2018.[2] Washington holds the FBS record for the longest unbeaten streak at 64 consecutive games, as well as the second-longest winning streak at 40 wins in a row.[2] There have been a total of 12 unbeaten seasons in school history, including seven perfect seasons.[2]

Washington is one of four charter members of what became the Pac-12 Conference and, along with California, is one of only two schools with uninterrupted membership.[4] From 1977 through 2003, Washington had 27 consecutive non-losing seasons—the most of any team in the Pac-12 and the 14th longest streak by an NCAA Division I-A team.[2] Through the 2017 season, its 390 conference victories rank second in conference history.[4]

Washington is often referred to as one of the top Quarterback U's due to the long history of quarterbacks playing in the National Football League (NFL), including the second-most QB starts in NFL history.[5][6] Dating back to Warren Moon in 1976, 14 of the last 19 quarterbacks who have led the team in passing for at least one season have gone on to play in the NFL.

Rose Bowl championships

Washington has 7 Rose Bowl championships. The program been continuously affiliated with the Pac-12 Conference and its predecessors, which historically agreed to send a representative (typically the conference champion) to participate in the Rose Bowl. The Big Ten Conference was similarly contracted following World War II. This pairing made the Rose Bowl the most prestigious Bowl Game available to Pac-12 teams prior to the BCS era.[7]
