Rose Bowl Game
The Rose Bowl Game is an annual American college football bowl game played on January 1 at the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California. When New Year's Day falls on a Sunday, the game is played on Monday, January 2; the Rose Bowl Game is nicknamed "The Granddaddy of Them All". It was first played in 1902 as the Tournament East–West football game, has been played annually since 1916. Since 1945, it has been the highest, it is a part of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association's "America's New Year Celebration", which includes the historic Rose Parade. Since 2015, the game has been sponsored by Northwestern Mutual and known as the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual. In 2015 and 2018, the game was officially known as the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual. Previous sponsors include Vizio, Sony/PlayStation 2, AT&T The Rose Bowl Game has traditionally hosted the conference champions from the Big Ten and Pac-12 conferences, but because of its past and present membership in two consortia that seek to determine a national champion in Division I FBS, in 2002, the Rose Bowl began to infrequently deviate from its traditional match-up in order to facilitate championship games.
In 2002 and 2006, under the Bowl Championship Series system, the Rose Bowl was designated as its championship game, hosted the top two teams determined by the BCS system. Beginning in 2015, the Rose Bowl has been part of the College Football Playoff and hosts one of its semifinal games every three years. During non-Playoff years, the Rose Bowl reverts to its traditional Pac-12/Big Ten matchup. Titled the "Tournament East–West football game", the first Rose Bowl was played on January 1, 1902, starting the tradition of New Year's Day bowl games; the football game was added in 1902 to help fund the cost of the Rose Parade. The inaugural game featured Fielding H. Yost's dominating 1901 Michigan team, representing the East, which crushed a 3-1-2 team from Stanford University, representing the West, by a score of 49–0 after Stanford quit in the third quarter. Michigan was crowned the national champion. Yost had been Stanford's coach the previous year; the game was so lopsided that for the next thirteen years, the Tournament of Roses officials ran chariot races, ostrich races, other various events instead of football.
But, on New Year's Day 1916, football returned to stay as the State College of Washington defeated Brown University in the first of what was thereafter an annual tradition. Before the Rose Bowl was built for the January 1, 1923 match, games were played in Pasadena's Tournament Park three miles southeast of the current Rose Bowl stadium near the campus of Caltech. Tournament Park was found to be unsuitable for the large crowds gathering to watch the game and a new, permanent home for the game was commissioned; the Rose Bowl stadium, designed after the Yale Bowl in New Haven hosted the first "Rose Bowl" game in 1923. The name of the stadium was alternatively "Tournament of Roses Stadium" or "Tournament of Roses Bowl", until the name "Rose Bowl" was settled on before the 1923 game; the stadium seating has been reconfigured several times since its original construction in 1922. For many years, the Rose Bowl stadium had the largest football stadium capacity in the United States being surpassed by Michigan Stadium in 1998.
The maximum stated seating capacity was 104,594 from 1972 to 1997. Capacity was lowered after the 1998 game; as of 2012, the Rose Bowl is number seven on the list of American football stadiums by capacity with a current official seating capacity of 92,542 and is still the largest stadium that hosts post-season bowl games. The Rose Bowl is the only CFP bowl game, held in a non-NFL stadium. In the game's early years, except during World War I, the Rose Bowl always pitted a team—not the conference champion—from the Pacific Coast Conference, the predecessor of the current Pac-12 Conference, against an opponent from the Eastern U. S. During the last two years of World War I, teams from military bases met in the Rose Bowl. During its history, a number of notable matchups have been made with the top football teams and top coaches of the time; these include the 1925 game, with Knute Rockne's Notre Dame and their Four Horsemen, against "Pop" Warner's Stanford. During this period, there were ten games. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, a series of attacks on West Coast shipping beginning on December 18, there were concerns about a possible Japanese attack on the West Coast.
The Rose Parade, with a million watchers, the Rose Bowl, with 90,000 spectators, were presumed to be ideal targets for the Japanese. Lieutenant General John L. DeWitt recommended that the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl festivities be cancelled; the Rose Bowl committee planned to cancel the game. On December 16, Duke University invited the game and Oregon State to Duke's home stadium in Durham, North Carolina. After the 1942 Allied victory in the Battle of Midway and the end of the Japanese offensives in the Pacific Theater during 1942, it was deemed that the West Co
The Alaskan Malamute is a large breed of domestic dog bred for their strength and endurance to haul heavy freight, as a sled dog. They are similar to other arctic breeds and spitz breeds, such as the Greenland Dog, Canadian Eskimo Dog, the Siberian Husky, the Samoyed. Although it is believed that the first dogs arrived in the Americas 12,000 years ago and their dogs did not settle in the Arctic until the Eskimo people 4,500 years ago and the Thule people 1,000 years ago, both originating from Siberia. Malamutes were bred by the Malemiut Inupiaq people of Alaska's Norton Sound region, who were a Thule people; the Malamute has been identified as a basal breed that predates the emergence of the modern breeds in the 19th Century. A study in 2013 showed that the Alaskan Malamute has a similar east Asian origin to, but is not related to, the Greenland Dog and the Canadian Eskimo Dog, but contains a possible admixture of the Siberian Husky. In 2015, a study using a number of genetic markers indicated that the Malamute, the Siberian Husky, the Alaskan husky share a close genetic relationship between each other and were related to Chukotka sled dogs from Siberia.
They were separate from the Canadian Eskimo Dog and the Greenland Dog. In North America, the Malamute and the Siberian Husky both had maintained their Siberian lineage and had contributed to the Alaskan husky, which showed evidence of crossing with European breeds, consistent with this breed being created in post-colonial North America; the American Kennel Club breed standard describes a natural range of size, with a desired size of 23 inches tall and 75 pounds for females, 25 inches tall and 85 pounds for males. Heavier individuals and dogs smaller than 75 pounds are seen. There is a marked size difference between males and females. Weights upwards of 100 pounds are seen; the coat of the Alaskan Malamute is a double coat. The undercoat can be as thick as two inches; the outer guard coat is coarse and stands off the body—longer at the withers but not more than one inch off the sides of the body. Ears are small in proportion to the head and stand erect when at attention; the Alaskan Malamute is a heavy dog, with a more formidable nature and structure than the Siberian Husky, bred for speed.
The Alaskan Malamute is bred for power and endurance, its original function and what the standard of the breed requires of Alaskan Malamute breeders. The usual colors are various shades of gray and white and white, black and white and white, red and white, or solid white. There are a wide range of markings in the breed including face markings, blazes, a splash at the nape of the neck, a collar or half collar. White is the predominant color on the body, parts of the legs and part of the markings of the face. In terms of color variants, some Malamutes exhibit a dark grey to buff-colored undertone around their trimmings and white areas, presenting with a color-linked gene known as'Agouti'. Two agouti alleles, with the possibility of a third, appear to be found in Malamutes:'aw','at', and'awat'; the eyes of the Alaskan Malamute are varied shades of brown. The physical build of the Malamute is compact and strong with substance and snowshoe feet. According to the AKC breed standard, the Malamute's tail is well furred and is carried over the back like a "waving plume".
Corkscrew tails are seen but are faulted in the AKC breed standard. The Malamutes' well-furred tails aid in keeping them warm, they are seen wrapping the tail around their nose and face, which helps protect them against harsh weather such as blowing snow. Their ears are upright, wedge-shaped, small in proportion to the head and set to the side of the skull; the muzzle is deep and broad, tapering from the skull to the nose. Nose and gums are black but some Malamutes have a snow nose, black with a pink undertone that can get darker or lighter, depending on the season. Alaskan Malamutes are still in use as sled dogs for personal travel, hauling freight, or helping move light objects. However, most Malamutes today are kept as family pets or as show or performance dogs in weight pulling, dog agility, or packing. Malamutes are slower in long-distance dog sled racing against smaller and faster breeds, so their working usefulness is limited to freighting or traveling over long distances at a far slower rate than required for racing.
They can help move heavy objects over shorter distances. An adult male Alaskan Malamute can pull around 500–1,500 kilograms of weight, depending on build and training; the Malamute has a long genetic foundation of living in harsh environments, many of its behaviors have adapted to survive in such environments. Independence, high intelligence, natural behaviors are common in the breed. Malamutes, like other Northern and sled dog breeds, can have a high prey drive, due to their origins and breeding; this may mean that in some cases they will chase smaller animals, including other canines, as well as rabbits and cats. While Malamutes are, as a general rule amicable around people and can be taught to tolerate smaller pets, it is necessary to be
Harry the Husky
Harry the Husky is a body-suit mascot for the University of Washington, one of two mascots the University's athletic program uses. Hendrix the Husky is Harry's brother; the University's first mascot was Sunny Boy, a 3-foot-tall, gold-painted statuette representing an illustration appearing in Columns, which - at the time - was a student-published campus humor magazine. The mascot was introduced in 1921 and retired three years when it got lost in Bush Auditorium and the University adopted the nickname "Huskies." In 1922, the University began using live sled dogs as its mascots, first a non-hereditary line of Siberian Huskies and, beginning in 1961, a hereditary line of Alaskan Malamutes, which are a different breed of dog from the husky. This makes the University of Washington the only university to have an NCAA team that uses live animal mascots that are different from its official mascot. Due to the size of the animals, difficulties of travel and handler schedules, the mascots only appear at home football games.
In 1995, officials in the University's athletic department commissioned a costume and held tryouts for the new live mascot. Three student performers were chosen and rotated duties to appear as a secondary mascot for use at events at which the live mascot was unable to attend. A contest and public vote two years named the new mascot "Harry the Husky." Coincidentally, the mascot had been referred to by that name during a scene in The 6th Man, a film starring Marlon Wayans about the University of Washington basketball team, released prior to the vote. In 2010, the University retired the old one; the new husky made his debut on October 9, 2010
The Orange Bowl is an annual American college football bowl game played in the Miami metropolitan area. It has been played annually since January 1, 1935, making it, along with the Sugar Bowl and the Sun Bowl, the second-oldest bowl game in the country, behind the Rose Bowl; the Orange Bowl is one of the New Year's Six, the top bowl games for the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The Orange Bowl was held in the city of Miami at Miami Field before moving to the Miami Orange Bowl stadium in 1938. In 1996, it moved to Hard Rock Stadium in Florida. Since December 2014, the game has been sponsored by Capital One and known as the Capital One Orange Bowl. Previous sponsors include Federal Express/FedEx. In its early years, the Orange Bowl had no defined conference tie-ins. From the 1950s until the mid-1990s, the Orange Bowl had a strong relationship with the Big Eight Conference; the champion was invited to the bowl game in most years during this time. Opponents of the Big Eight varied. Since 2007, the Orange Bowl has hosted the ACC champion—unless they are involved in the national championship playoff, in which case another high-ranking ACC team team takes their place)—and has used the brand Home of the ACC Champion.
In the 1990s, the Orange Bowl kept its Big Eight tie-in. It was a member of the Bowl Alliance. From 1998 to 2013, The Orange Bowl was a member of the now-defunct Bowl Championship Series; the Orange Bowl served as the BCS National Championship Game in 2001 and 2005. However, beginning with the 2006 season, the BCS National Championship Game became a stand-alone event, hosted by the local bowl organization about one week following the New Year's Day bowl games. Under that format, the Orange Bowl Committee hosted two separate games in both 2009 and in 2013 at all the same venue; the BCS ended after the 2013 season. The Orange Bowl has served. In 1890, California held its first Tournament of Roses Parade to showcase the city's mild weather compared to the harsh winters in northern cities; as one of the organizers said: "In New York, people are buried in snow. Here, our flowers are blooming and our oranges are about to bear. Let's hold a festival to tell the world about our paradise." In 1902, the annual festival was enhanced by adding an American football game.
In 1926, leaders in Miami, decided to do the same with a "Fiesta of the American Tropics", centered around a New Year's Day football game. Although a second "Fiesta" was never held, Miami leaders, including Earnest E. Seiler revived the idea with the "Palm Festival". In 1932, George E. Hussey, official greeter of Miami, organized the first Festival of Palms Bowl, a predecessor of the Orange Bowl. With Miami suffering from both the Great Depression and the preceding Florida land bust and other Miamians sought to help its economy by organizing a game similar to Pasadena's Rose Bowl. Two games were played in this series at Moore Park in Miami, both pitting an invited opponent against a local team, the University of Miami. In the first game, played on January 2, 1933, Miami defeated Manhattan College 7–0. In the second game, played on New Year's Day 1934, Duquesne defeated Miami 33–7. Duquesne was coached by one of the Four Horsemen of Notre Dame; these games are not recognized as bowl games by the NCAA because one team was guaranteed a berth regardless of record.
However, following the success of these games, backers organized another game for New Year's Day 1935 under the Orange Bowl name. This game, unlike the Palm Festival Games, did not automatically grant a berth to one team, although the University of Miami was again a participant. For this reason, the 1935 Orange Bowl was recognized by the NCAA as an official bowl game; the Orange Bowl was played at Miami Field from 1935 to 1937, the Miami Orange Bowl from 1938 to 1996 and 1999, was moved to its current site, Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, in December 1996. The game was moved back to the namesake stadium in 1999 because the game was played on the same day the Miami Dolphins hosted an NFL Wild Card Playoff game. Coincidentally, both of those games were aired on ABC. On January 1, 1965, the Texas vs. Alabama Orange Bowl was the first college bowl game to be televised live in prime time. From 1968, the game featured the champion of the former Big Eight Conference; when the Big Eight Conference absorbed four members of the defunct Southwest Conference in 1996, the newly formed Big 12 Conference moved its conference champion tie-in to the Fiesta Bowl.
Since 1998, with the creation of the Bowl Championship Series system, team selection for the Orange Bowl is now tied into the other three BCS Bowls. From 1998 to 2005, the game hosted the c
Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium is an outdoor football stadium in the northwest United States, located on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. It has been the home of the Washington Huskies of the Pac-12 Conference since 1920, hosting its football games; the university holds its annual commencement at the stadium in June. It is located at the southeastern corner of campus, between Montlake Boulevard N. E. and Union Bay, just north of the Montlake Cut. The stadium is served by the University of Washington Link light rail station, as well as several bus routes; the stadium underwent a $280 million renovation, completed in 2013. Its U-shaped design was oriented to minimize glare from the early afternoon sun in the athletes' eyes; the stadium's open end overlooks scenic Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains, including Mount Rainier. Prior to the 2013 renovation, its total capacity of 72,500 made it the largest stadium in the Pacific Northwest and one of the largest stadiums in college football.
The original stadium was built 99 years ago in 1920 by Puget Sound Bridge and Dredging Company with a seating capacity of 30,000. It replaced Denny Field, located at the north end of campus, south of NE 45th St. and 20th Ave NE. Husky Stadium's first game was the concluding game of the 1920 season, a 28–7 loss to Dartmouth on November 27. In the summer of 1923, the stadium was the site of President Warren Harding's final public address on July 27, less than a week before his unexpected death in San Francisco; the capacity of the lower bowl was expanded with the addition of 10,000 seats around the rim in 1936, a few thousand more in 1968. The first of the stadium's iconic covered grandstands was constructed in 1950, adding 15,000 seats to the south side. In 1987, 13,000 seats were added with the construction of the north grandstand. Similar to the south stand, this structure included a cantilevered steel roof covering a portion of the lower seats; the project made headlines on February 25, 1987, when the grandstand collapsed during construction as a result of miscommunication between the workers and the contractor, which lead to the premature removal during the intended replacement of several support cables.
Although there were no casualties, property damage ranged from $500,000 to $1 million and resulted in setbacks. Husky Stadium was a primary venue for the 1990 Goodwill Games, where the crowd saw an address by former President Ronald Reagan, as well as an address by Arnold Schwarzenegger, a performance by the Moody Blues & Gorky Park; the stadium hosted closing ceremonies, as well as the track & field competition. Husky Stadium was the temporary home of the Seattle Seahawks for five games in 1994 while the Kingdome was temporarily closed for repairs to its damaged roof. After the demolition of the Kingdome in March 2000, the Seahawks played at Husky Stadium for the 2000 and 2001 seasons before moving into Seahawks Stadium in 2002; the playing field at Husky Stadium was dirt, replaced with natural grass in 1938. In 1968, Washington became one of the first major college teams to play on AstroTurf at home; the AstroTurf field was replaced in 1972, 1977, 1987, 1995. FieldTurf, a new variation of synthetic turf, was installed in 2000 at a cost of $1,074,958.
The new turf features enhanced drainage and reduced abrasion through the use of synthetic fibers that are tufted into an infill of sand and rubber. The project was funded by Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen, who used Husky Stadium as a temporary home venue during the construction of CenturyLink Field; the first of its kind in the NFL, the surface was so popular with the players that the Seahawks, who had planned to use natural grass at their new stadium, instead installed their own FieldTurf surface. The FieldTurf at Husky Stadium was replaced with a newer one after nine seasons in 2009 at a cost of $350,000. In addition to the new playing surface, the Seahawks made other improvements to Husky stadium in preparation for its tenure as an NFL venue for two seasons. A larger scoreboard debuted with a 23-by-42-foot "HuskyTron" video screen. Improved lighting for television, including corner lights, was added in 1999, official NFL goalposts were installed in 2000; the Husky Stadium end zones were painted gold during early 1990s.
They became natural green with the installation of FieldTurf in 2000, which lasted until 2009 when they reverted to gold for one season. Purple end zones returned prior the 2010 season, were temporarily painted black for the Huskies' first "blackout" game against UCLA on November 18. On September 3, 2015, Alaska Airlines purchased naming rights to the field, which changed the official name to "Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium"; the agreement, in which the university will receive $41 million over 10 years, became the largest of its kind in college athletics. Many claim that the first audience wave originated in Husky Stadium on Halloween 1981, at the prompting of Husky band trumpeter Dave Hunter. Contrary to Hunter's account, former Washington yell leader Robb Weller has claimed credit for the first wave. Weller was the guest yell-king during the Huskies' homecoming football game against Stanford, his initial concept for the wave was for it to travel vertically, from the bottom of the stands to the top, within the Husky student section.
When the stunt was met with limited interest, he decided to
Gold called golden, is a color. The web color gold is sometimes referred to as golden to distinguish it from the color metallic gold; the use of gold as a color term in traditional usage is more applied to the color "metallic gold". The first recorded use of golden as a color name in English was in 1300 to refer to the element gold and in 1423 to refer to blond hair. Metallic gold, such as in paint, is called goldtone or gold tone. In heraldry, the French word or is used. In model building, the color gold is different from brass. A shiny or metallic silvertone object can be painted with transparent yellow to obtain goldtone, something done with Christmas decorations. At right is displayed a representation of the color metallic gold, a simulation of the color of the actual metallic element gold itself—gold shade; the source of this color is the ISCC-NBS Dictionary of Color Names, a color dictionary used by stamp collectors to identify the colors of stamps—See color sample of the color Gold displayed on indicated web page:The first recorded use of gold as a color name in English was in the year 1400.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines the color metallic gold as "A light olive-brown to dark yellow, or a moderate, strong to vivid yellow." Of course, the visual sensation associated with the metal gold is its metallic shine. This cannot be reproduced by a simple solid color, because the shiny effect is due to the material's reflective brightness varying with the surface's angle to the light source; this is. In sacral art in Christian churches, real gold was used for rendering gold in paintings, e.g. for the halo of saints. Gold can be woven into sheets of silk to give an East Asian traditional look. More recent art styles, e.g. art nouveau made use of a metallic, shining gold. Old gold is a dark yellow, which varies from heavy olive brown to deep or strong yellow; the accepted color old gold is on the darker rather than the lighter side of this range. The first recorded use of old gold as a color name in English was in the early 19th century; the Delta Sigma Pi fraternity, founded in November 7, 1907, official colors are designated royal purple and old gold.
The Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity's colors are old gold. Old gold is one of two colors of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. Maroon and old gold are the colors of Texas State University's intercollegiate sports teams. Old Gold and black are the team colors of Purdue University Boilermakers intercollegiate sports teams; the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets wore white and old gold. The Wake Forest Demon Deacons, UCF Knights, Vanderbilt Commodores wear old gold and black; the New Orleans Saints list their official team colors as old gold and white. Golden yellow is the color halfway between yellow on the RGB color wheel, it is a color, 87.5% yellow and 12.5% red. The first recorded use of golden yellow as a color name in English was in the year 1597. Golden poppy is a tone of gold, the color of the California poppy—the official state flower of California—the Golden State; the first recorded use of golden poppy as a color name in English was in 1927. Gold is the oldest color associated with Arizona State University and dates back to 1896 when the school was named the Tempe Normal School.
Gold signifies the "golden promise" of ASU. The promise includes every student receiving a valuable educational experience. Gold signifies the sunshine Arizona is famous for; the student section, known as The Inferno, wears gold on game days. The official colors of the University of Southern California are Pantone 201C and Pantone 123C; these colors, designated as USC Cardinal and USC Gold, were adopted in 1895 by Rev. George W. White, USC’s third president, are equal in importance in identifying the USC Trojans; this is a shade of gold identified by the University of California, Berkeley in their graphic style guide for use in on-screen representations of the gold color in the university's seal. For print media, the guide recommends to, "se Pantone 7750 metallic or Pantone 123 yellow and 282 blue". Cal Poly Pomona gold is one of the two the official colors of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona; the official university colors are gold. Cal Poly Pomona's Office of Public Affairs created the colors for web development and has technical guidelines and privacy protection.
If web developers are using gold on a university website, they are encouraged to use Cal Poly Pomona gold. It is notable for its prominent use representing Cal Poly Pomona's athletic teams, the Cal Poly Pomona Broncos; the color was approved by the University of California, Los Angeles Chancellor in October 2013. This is a shade of gold identified by the university for use in their printed publications. MU Gold is used by the University of Missouri as the official school color along with black. Mizzou Identity Standards designated the color for web development as well as logos and images that developers are asked to follow in the University's Guidelines for using official Mizzou logos; the color pale gold is displayed
Washington Huskies football
The Washington Huskies football team represents the University of Washington in college football. Washington competes in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision as a member of the North Division of the Pac-12 Conference; the team is led by head coach Chris Petersen. Husky Stadium, located on campus, has served as the home field for Washington since 1920. Washington has won seventeen conference championships, seven Rose Bowls, claims two national championships recognized by the NCAA; the school's all-time record ranks 20th by win percentage and 19th by total victories among FBS schools as of 2018. Washington holds the FBS record for the longest unbeaten streak at 64 consecutive games, as well as the second-longest winning streak at 40 wins in a row. There have been a total of twelve unbeaten seasons in school history, including seven perfect seasons. Washington is one of four charter members of what became the Pac-12 Conference and, along with California, is one of only two schools with uninterrupted membership.
From 1977 through 2003, Washington had 27 consecutive non-losing seasons—the most of any team in the Pac-12 and the 14th longest streak by an NCAA Division I-A team. Through the 2017 season, its 390 conference victories rank second in conference history. Washington is referred to as one of the top Quarterback U's due to the long history of quarterbacks playing in the National Football League, including the second-most QB starts in NFL history. Dating back to Warren Moon in 1976, 14 of the last 19 quarterbacks who have led the team in passing for at least one season have gone on to play in the NFL. Ten different men served as Washington head coaches during the first 18 seasons. While still an independent, the team progressed from playing 1 to 2 games per season to 10 matches per season as the sport grew in popularity; the school used a variety of locations for its home field. Home attendance grew from a few hundred to a few thousand per home game, with on-campus Denny Field becoming home from 1895 onward.
The 1900 team played in-state rival Washington State College to a 5–5 tie, in the first game in the annual contest known as the Apple Cup. Gil Dobie left North Dakota Agricultural and became Washington's head coach in 1908. Dobie coached for nine remarkable seasons at Washington. Dobie's career comprised all of Washington's NCAA all-time longest 64-game unbeaten streak and included a 40-game winning streak, second longest in NCAA Division I-A/FBS history. In 1916, Washington and three other schools formed the Pacific Coast Conference, predecessor to the modern Pac-12 Conference. In Dobie's final season at Washington, his 1916 team won the PCC's inaugural conference championship. Dobie was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1951 as a charter member. Following Dobie's tenure, Washington turned to a succession of coaches with mixed results. Claude J. Hunt went a cumulative 6–3–1 highlighted by the school's second PCC championship in 1919, Tony Savage 1–1, Stub Allison 1–5; this era concluded with the team's move from Denny Field to its permanent home field of Husky Stadium in 1920.
Washington athletics adopted the initial nickname of Sun Dodgers in 1919 used until 1922, before becoming the Huskies from 1923 onward. Enoch Bagshaw graduated from Washington in 1907 as the school's first five-year letterman in football history. After leading Everett High School from 1909 to 1920, including consecutive national championships in 1919 and 1920, Bagshaw returned to Washington as the first former player turned head coach in 1921 overseeing the program's second period of sustained success. Bagshaw's tenure was marked by 63–22–6 record and the school's first two Rose Bowl berths, resulting in a 14–14 tie against Navy in the 1924 Rose Bowl and a 19–20 loss to Alabama in the 1926 Rose Bowl, his 1925 team won the school's third PCC championship. Bagshaw left the program after his 1929 team had a losing season, only the second such season in his tenure. Bagshaw died the following year at the age of 46. James Phelan succeeded Bagshaw for the 1930 season; the Notre Dame graduate guided the Huskies to a 65–37–8 record over 12 seasons.
His 1936 team won the school's fourth PCC championship, but lost in the 1937 Rose Bowl to Pittsburgh 0–21. Phelan guided the Huskies to their first bowl game victory, beating Hawaii 53–13 in the 1938 Poi Bowl. In years, he became the first former Husky head coach to take the same role in professional football. Phelan was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1973. Following Phelan, Washington fielded a succession of teams under four coaches without either great success, or failure. Washington participated in one bowl game and tallied no conference championships during this period with an overall record of 65–68–7. Ralph Welch played at Purdue under head coach James Phelan, whom he followed to Washington to become an assistant coach in 1930. In 1942, Welch was promoted to succeed Phelan as Washington's head coach and served until 1947, compiling a record of 27–20–3. World War II limited both the 1943 and 1944 seasons of the PCC, reducing team participation from ten team down to just four.
Welch's 1943 team accepted the school's third Rose Bowl bid, but lost to PCC champion USC 0–29 in the 1944 Rose Bowl. Welch's first five teams all fielded winning records. Howard Odell joined Washington in 1948 from Yale. In his five seasons from 1948 to 1952, he compiled a record of 23–25–2 with two winning seasons. John Cherberg, a Washington player and assistant from 1946 to 1952, became head coach in 1953, he compiled a 10 -- 18 -- 2 record before being removed due to a payoff scandal. Cherberg went on to become Washington state's longest se
