The Washington Huskies and Utah Utes will face off in one of the biggest Pac-12 matchups of the year. A potential Pac-12 title preview, 7-0 Washington and 7-1 Utah try to stay on track for not only a potential conference title, but a possible playoff bid. And College Gameday will be there!

Washington has been the most dominant team in the Pac-12 up to this point. Aside from a brief and bizarre scare from cellar dweller Arizona, Washington has rolled through their opposition, winning by 35 points or more a game in every contest but one.
Utah’s road has been a little rockier. Utah squeaked out a one point win against BYU, needed a late comeback in the final seconds to edge out USC, lost on the final play on the final yard against Cal, survived a scare from Oregon State, and rolled up 52 on UCLA.
If Washington loses and the Pac-12 playoff race isn’t quite so clear anymore, it’s likely that this might be the only visit to the Pac-12 College Gameday this season. The only other trips I could see Gameday making are to Seattle is the USC vs. Washington game, and that requires both the Trojans and the Huskies to stay on track.
