Go Huskies!

Shout it from the stands. Say it without words through our beloved hand gesture. Live it. It’s more than an expression. It’s our battle cry, and there’s never been a better time to Go Huskies!

Don’t miss a minute of the action on a campus pulsing with pride. Take part in timeless traditions. Wear red and black. Cheer on our Huskie athletes.
