Super Bowl XLVIII

Seattle Seahawks vs. Denver Broncos

Biggest wins in Seattle Sports History

Seattle Metropolitans

The 1917 Stanley Cup Final was contested by the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) champion Seattle Metropolitans and the National Hockey Association (NHA) champion Montreal Canadiens. Seattle defeated Montreal three games to one in a best-of-five game series to become the first United States-based team to win the Cup. Seattle won Game 4 on March 26, 1917.

Slo-mo-Shun IV

Stanley Sayres’ record-breaking Slo-mo-Shun IV, made an impressive debut in American Speedboat competition as she won the 90-mile Gold Cup race on the Detroit River (July 22, 1950). That win would live on in Seattle history as the city of Seattle used that win to have a hydroplane race in Seattle starting in 1951. Seafair would never be the same and the city’s summer celebration climaxed each August with the hydros racing on Lake Washington.

Seattle SuperSonics

The Sonics defeated the Washington Bullets 4-games-to-1 to win the NBA Finals. Seattle won Game 5 97-93 on June 1, 1979.

Washington Huskies

1960 – The Huskies beat #1 Minnesota in the Jan. 2, 1961 Rose Bowl 17-7 to finish the season 10-1 and was declared National Champions by the Helms Athletic Foundation.

1991 – The Don James-led team completed their season 12-0 with a 34-14 victory over the Michigan Wolverines in the Jan. 1, 1992 Rose Bowl.
