Rankings from AP Poll

This was Washington's first losing season since 1976. Following lopsided road losses at USC and Oregon, Gilbertson announced on the first of November that he would step down at the end of the season.[2][3][4] The Huskies lost the remaining three games; the final loss at Washington State was UW's first Apple Cup defeat in seven years.[5][6][7] Washington's most recent one-victory season was in 1969.
