SEATTLE – The University of Washington football team didn’t suffer too badly in the rankings after losing to USC on Saturday.

The Huskies dropped to No. 6 in the rankings released Tuesday night – out of the top 4 spots that are on pace to get a  slot in the playoffs, but still within striking distance.

The Huskies play Arizona State on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on Q13 FOX, with pregame coverage beginning at 4 p.m. That follows Washington State’s game against Colorado at 12:30 p.m., with pregame coverage on Q13 beginning at 11:30 a.m.

Washington  will wrap up the regular season in the Apple Cup the following Friday, with a trip to the Pac-12 title game on the line for both the Huskies and the Cougars if both win their games this weekend. That game will also be on Q13 FOX, with pregame coverage beginning at noon.
