Huskies Announce 2021 Schedule
SEATTLE - The 2021 schedule is set for the Washington Huskies, who will begin play in two weeks. Washington will play five weeks of non-conference games before opening Pac-12 play. This year's Pac-12 slate will include four games against every opponent, making it 32 games against Pac-12 opponents. Game times, dates, and opponents are subject to change as necessary.
The Huskies will play 20 games at Husky Softball Stadium this season, with all of those games streamed live via the Pac-12 Network or Washington's online live stream. Watch links will be made available for all streamed games on Washington's GoHuskies.com schedule page.
Washington will begin its 2021 season on the road, at the UNLV Kick-Off Classic, beginning on February 12. The Huskies will play three preseason tournaments, at UNLV, at Dixie State, and at the annual Husky Classic at Husky Softball Stadium. Washington will also play five games on the road against San Diego State and San Diego the weekend of February 26, and will play a three-game series at Hawai'i beginning March 4.
More information on Washington's non-conference games is available on the GoHuskies.com schedule page. Game times and opponents are subject to change as necessary with scheduling constraints.
The Pac-12 schedule begins March 19 as the Huskies host Arizona in the first Pac-12 action since the 2019 season. This year, Washington will host Arizona (March 19-21), California (April 1-4), Oregon (April 16-18), and Utah (May 7-10). Washington's road games will be at Arizona State (March 26-28), Oregon State (April 9-11), UCLA (April 23-25), and Stanford (May 13-15). That Stanford series will end the regular season, with Regionals set to begin on May 21.
The first and fourth game of every Pac-12 series will count as a conference game for the standings. The first Saturday game of the doubleheader will also count as a conference game. However, the second game of the Saturday doubleheaders will not count as a Pac-12 game. If one of the other three games is not completed for any reason, that game will become a conference game in the standings.
This will be Washington's first action since the 2020 season ended abruptly last March. At the time, Washington was 23-2 and ranked second in the country. Washington has not played a Pac-12 game since the 2019 season, when the Huskies won the Pac-12 championship with a 20-4 record and reached its third consecutive Women's College World Series. Only once in Washington history have the Huskies had a longer streak of consecutive WCWS trips: 1996-2000, when the Huskies made five straight trips.
