Getting back to a bowl game for the third straight season looked tenuous when Washington was sliding through a three-game losing streak a month ago.
Now that Washington has corrected its problems, reinvigorated a lackluster offense and won three straight games to get the all-important six victories, the Huskies know they have a postseason invitation somewhere.
The question now is where will the Huskies be going?
Their destination will be largely determined by what Washington (6-4, 4-3 Pac-12) does the final two weeks against lowly Colorado and rival Washington State, who have a combined three victories. Two wins would give Washington its first 8-win season since going 8-4 in 2001.
