History: The Washington Husky squad of 1940 finished their season with an impressive record of 7-2 and a National ranking of #12. After losing to Stanford in the seventh game of the year, the Huskies took vengeance upon California teams in back-to-back shut outs of USC (14-0) and UCLA (33-9) respectively. They capped off their season by stomping arch rival Washington State 33-9 to capture what was then known as the "Governor's Trophy." The rivalry game has been referred to as the "Apple Cup," since 1962. The Washington Huskies football team are currently members of the Pac-12 Conference North Division. They play their home games on Alaska Airlines Field in Husky Stadium, Seattle Washington.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.
