Preview: Little to cheer about for Hawks or Husky fans this weekend

Sep 15, 2011

The Seattle Seahawks and Washington Huskies are poised to make rather dubious history this weekend. They're both underdogs in their respective football games. If the spreads hold true, it could be a grim weekend for football fans.

The Hawks are 14-point underdogs against the Steelers. The Huskies are 17-point underdogs against Nebraska.

KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel says he can't recall ever seeing such a spread for both teams in the same weekend. He's particularly shocked by the Seahawks' point spread. And there's another interesting aspect to this weekend's matchup between the Seahawks and Steelers.
