Huskies and Hawks both 3-0 for the first time

27 Sep

Never before have the Washington Huskies and the Seattle Seahawks each started a season both 3-0 until this year.

The Seahawks started playing in 1976 and are currently playing in their 38th NFL season.

The Seahawks have a chance to run their mark to 4-0 for the first time in team history.

Sunday will be their sixth chance to stay undefeated through the first quarter of the season. They’ll play on the road against the Houston Texans,

Lets look back at the five times they didn’t make it to four:

1986 – @ Washington 19, SEAHAWKS 14

1998 – @ Pittsburgh 13, SEAHAWKS 10

2003 – @ Green Bay 35, SEAHAWKS 13

2004 – St. Louis 33, @ SEAHAWKS 27, OT

2006 – @ Chicago 37, SEAHAWKS 6 (Game played on Sunday night.)

 

WASHINGTON HUSKIES STILL PERFECT

The Huskies started 3-0 for the first time since the 2001 season when they won their first four games before losing at UCLA.

It’s the 16th time since 1950 UW started at least 3-0

Record before first lost:

3-0 – Four times (1981, 1988, 1990, 2000)

4-0 – Five times (1950, 1955, 1959, 1971, 2001)

5-0 – One time (1972)

6-0 – One time (1979)

7-0 – One time (1982)

8-0 – One time (1992)

9-0 – One time (1984)

12-0 One time (1991)

By years

1993-2013 – Three times from 21 seasons, 14% of the time.

1975-1992 – Eight times from 18 seasons that Don James was coach, 44% of the time.

1950-1974 – Five times from 25 seasons, 20% of the time.

 

Most years between seasons with at least a 3-0 start:

12 – 1959-1971

12 – 2001-2013

8 – 1992-2000

7 – 1972-1979

Why has Husky football been so popular over the years?

It all started in the 1920s when UW started every season between 1921 and 1928 winning at least their first three games of the season!

1921 – 3-0

1922 – 5-0

1923 – 8-0

1924 – 6-0

1925 – 4-0

1926 – 5-0
