The season is over for most of the local college football teams. Everyone except for Washington, that is.
The Huskies play Boise State on Saturday in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Washington showed signs of improvement near the end of the season before struggling in the Apple Cup against rival Washington State. With that game now in the past, they are out to atone for that disappointing performance.
"I thought we went through a stretch there late in the season where we played pretty well up front," said coach Steve Sarkisian. "It was a bit disappointing we didn't have our best game in the last game against Washington State. I know the guys are hungry for the challenge to come out and redeem themselves in the bowl game."
Washington arrived in Las Vegas on Monday, greeted by an Elvis Presley impersonator when they got to the team hotel. The team will practice like a normal game week Tuesday through Friday.
Saturday's game is at 12:30 p.m. and can be seen on ESPN.
