SEATTLE (AP) It's a very strange place that No. 16 Washington finds itself in with two games left in the regular season.
The Huskies' hopes of landing a spot in the College Football Playoff were dashed when they lost to Stanford. Their shot at playing in the Pac-12 championship game is completely out of their control. Even if the Huskies (8-2, 5-2, No. 18 CFP) win their last two games to reach 10 victories it may not be good enough to land them an at-large spot in one of the New Year's Six bowl games.
In the end, the Huskies may end up playing the role of spoilers, beginning with Saturday's game against Utah.
