    Colorado v. Washington – Notes worth Noting
    - Colorado and Washington, though new to each other as Pac-12 partners, have a great deal in common. The two*schools have each been playing football for122 years, more years than any other*Pac-12 teams. In CU history, the Buffs have played 1,155 games; while the Huskies have played 1,130. Washington has a better overall winning percentage (.612 to .598), but Colorado has more wins – at least for now (672 to 667).
    - Since 1989 (Dave Plati’s arbitrary yardstick, so as to give the Buffs the most wins possible in the range considered), Colorado is 31st in terms of winning percentage over that span (.596), while Washington is 35th (.562). Over the past 22 seasons, only USC (13th, .694) and Oregon (17th, .662) have maintained a better winning percentage amongst Pac-12 teams.
    - In the 11 games played between Colorado and Washington (5-5-1), there have been some memorable moments. The first game was played in Seattle in 1915 (a 46-0 Washington victory), with the teams not meeting again until 1953. After three games in the 1950′s (a 1-1-1 split), the teams did not play again until 1976 (a 21-7 CU victory). The last six games have been played since 1985, and have included two bowl games, and three games in which both teams were ranked:
    - In the 1985 Freedom Bowl, Washington out-lasted Colorado in a game in which junior tight end Jon Embree scored the final points;
    - In 1989, 5th-ranked Colorado won big over No. 21 Washington in Seattle. The game was one of the most emotional in CU history, coming a week after quarterback Sal Aunese died. Aunese’s charge to the team, “bring home the Orange Bowl“, served as an inspiration to the team the remainder of that Big Eight championship season;
    In 1990, 20th-ranked Colorado held off 12th-ranked Washington in Boulder. The Buffs were 2-1-1, and were playing their fourth ranked opponent in five games. An interception in the endzone by Deon Figures with under a minute to play sealed the victory, putting the Buffs back into the national spotlight, on their way to a national championship;
    - In 1996, No. 8 Colorado and No. 13 Washington squared off in the Holiday Bowl. The Buffs, snubbed by the Cotton Bowl, fell behind 14-0 early, but roared back behind record-setting performances by quarterback Koy Detmer and wide receiver Rae Carruth;
    - The last two games played between the two teams came in 1999 and 2000. The games were emotional for the Buffs, as the players were facing off against former head coach Rick Neuheisel. Both games were close, but Washington won in Seattle, 31-24, and*in Boulder, 17-14.

    - Rick Neuheisel is not the only Washington head coach with CU ties. Legendary Washington head coach Don James was a defensive coordinator at Colorado, working for Eddie Crowder from 1968-70;
