Previous seasonEdit

The Huskies finished the 2015 season 7–6 overall and 4–5 in conference, tying for fourth place in the Pac-12 North. They were invited to the Heart of Dallas Bowl where they defeated Southern Miss.

During the offseason, defensive line coach and special teams coordinator Jeff Choate left Washington to accept the head coach position at Montana State. Former Husky defensive back Ikaika Malloe was hired from Utah State to coach the defensive line in 2016, while linebackers coach Bob Gregory took over special teams.

Wide receivers coach Brent Pease did not have his contract renewed following the 2015 season. Pease was replaced by offensive quality control coach Bush Hamdan, who also took on the title of passing game coordinator.

Coming off of a 44–6 win against #7 Stanford at Husky Stadium, #5 Washington traveled to Autzen Stadium to face a 2–3 Oregon team. Prior to this game, Oregon had beaten Washington twelve straight times, ten of which were by a margin of 20 points or more. This was the longest winning streak by either team in the Oregon-Washington football rivalry.

The Oregon winning streak was finally snapped after a 70–21 Washington rout. On the first play from the line of scrimmage, Washington safety Budda Baker, a one-time commit to the Oregon Ducks, intercepted the pass from Oregon's true freshman Justin Herbert. The Huskies took the lead on a Jake Browning touchdown run with 13:23 left in the first quarter and never relinquished it. The Huskies led 35–7 by halftime, 42–7 after the first possession of the third quarter, and 70–21 with 9:58 left in the fourth quarter.[2]

The Washington offense racked up 682 yards of total offense, averaged 10.1 yards per play, amassed 6 passing touchdowns by quarterback Jake Browning, and scored 70 points, the most scored by either team in the rivalry. The Huskies’ 70 points were the second-most an opponent has ever scored on Oregon in Eugene.[3]
