On the schedule, the University of Washington football team s homecoming game in October. But in reality, Homecoming was Saturday night.
After playing last season at CenturyLink Field, the school opened its new $250 million Husky Stadium Saturday night with a win against Boise State.
I love it. I m really impressed, commented Huskies fan Pete Verretto.
Verretto is a longtime season ticket holder, and his grandfather was at the first game at the original Husky Stadium.
He sat on the 50-yard line next to the mayor, he recalled, I don t think fans back then could comprehend this.
New Husky Stadium includes more luxury seats, a massive scoreboard, and the removal of the old track which allows fans to be closer to the field.
