The Huskies previously had announced a game against blueblood Indiana at Madison Square Garden Nov. 21 as part of the 2K Classic.

Washington also hosts Connecticut Dec. 22, giving it a chance to play UConn three times in less than a year. Washington lost to UConn 61-53 in Storrs, Conn., last season on Dec. 29.
Washington travels to San Diego State on Dec. 8 to face the Aztecs, who were 23-11 last season and lost in the third round of the NCAA Tournament to March Madness darling Florida Gulf Coast. The Huskies are 2-0 all-time against the Aztecs, including 1-0 at their home arena.
