The Fresno State Bulldogs will play at the Washington Huskies in 2017, Fresno State Director of Athletics Jim Bartko announced Monday.
Fresno State will make the trip to Husky Stadium in Seattle on Sept. 16, 2017. The game will be the fourth overall meeting between the two schools and fourth in Seattle. UW leads the series 2-1.
“This is a great opportunity for us to stay on the west coast and play a highly competitive Pac-12 program,” Bartko said. “This game will provide us with great exposure and is an easy trip for both our team and our fans to get to and from Seattle.”
The addition of the trip to Washington gives Fresno State three of their four-non-conference games for the 2017 season. The Bulldogs are also slated to host Incarnate Word on Sept. 2 and BYU on Nov. 4.
Fresno State has the option to play five non-conference games in 2017 as they are scheduled to visit Hawaii that season.
MWC games for Fresno State in 2017 include Boise State, Nevada, New Mexico, and UNLV at home and Hawaii, San Diego State, San Jose State, and Wyoming on the road.
The Washington Huskies have now completed their non-conference schedule in 2017. UW opens the season at Rutgers on Sept. 2 and then hosts Montana on Sept. 9 before taking on Fresno State.
