The Washington Huskies have added the Georgia State Panthers to their 2014 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.
According to a copy of the contract, Washington will host Georgia State at Husky Stadium in Seattle on September 20, 2014. UW will pay GSU $900,000 for the game and there will be a fee of $1.5 million if either team should cancel.
Washington now has 13 games scheduled for the 2014 season, which is allowed due to the Hawaii Exemption. Teams that play at Hawaii during the regular season are allowed to schedule a 13th game. The Huskies are scheduled to open the 2014 season at Aloha Stadium on Aug. 30.
The other two non-conference games for Washington are Eastern Washington (Sept. 6) and Illinois (Sept. 13), both at home.
Washington’s Pac-12 schedule in 2014 should be a reverse of 2013, so the Huskies will host Arizona State, Oregon State, Stanford, and UCLA and travel to Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington State.
Georgia State played their first football season in 2010. The Panthers are moving up from the FCS to the FBS and will join the Sun Belt Conference for the 2013 season.
GSU has never played a team from the Pac-12. In their first three seasons, Georgia State is 10-23 overall and 1-6 against teams from FBS conferences (0-1 vs. C-USA, 0-2 vs. SEC, 1-1 vs. Sun Belt, 0-2 vs. WAC).
