The Big Ten Conference has expanded to 18 teams with the addition of four former PAC-12 programs. In Week 6, the Iowa Hawkeyes will get their first opportunity to square off with one of those teams as they host the Washington Huskies.

Iowa hasn’t played Washington since the 1995 Sun Bowl, which Iowa won 38-18. The only times these two met in the Rose Bowl, Washington took both games by a combined score of 74-34. However, Iowa and Washington are tied in the all-time series 3-3.

So, what can Iowa expect from one of the Big Ten’s newest additions in a more modern age?

Last season, the Huskies had a remarkable run, going undefeated until the final game – the College Football Playoff National Championship.

While that game was just a few months ago, for Husky fans it likely already feels like a decade ago. Seemingly no team, short of the Michigan Wolverines, that had national championship aspirations last year has undergone more turnover since the conclusion of the college football season.
