Huskies Gameday — Annually voted the most scenic football structure in the nation
A seating capacity of 72,500 allows Husky Stadium to rank as the nation’s 15th largest on-campus facility. It is the largest stadium, college or professional, in the Pacific Northwest.
During the 1992 Nebraska contest, the first night game in Husky Stadium history, ESPN sideline crews measured the crowd noise at 130 decibels.
Tailgating takes on a whole new meaning at Husky Stadium. Boat moorings are available for fans to travel to Washington games via the water. Members of the Husky crew team shuttle fans back-and-forth between their vessels and the docks adjoining the stadium grounds. The north upper deck offers sweeping views of Mt. Rainier, the Olympic Mountain Range and downtown Seattle.
“I knew it would be a very, very difficult place to play. But I thought it was really a class atmosphere of Washington and I thought the fans, the administration, it was just a great environment. They were so rabid for their own team, but with real class. They didn’t try to tear you down or anything else, but they cheered for their team and showed respect for Notre Dame and I think that is a very healthy environment.”
-Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz after the 1995 Irish game at Washington
