Huskies links: UW announces 2016 football ticket pricing, Jacob Eason to announce decision, plus other stuff

A few links as the UW football and basketball teams focus on final exams ...

--- The University of Washington athletic department announced on Monday that there will be no increase in price for non-premium season football tickets in 2016, and that donation levels for Tyee will remain the same (premium seats, according to this map, are priced at $525 plus a seat-related donation, with Tyee seats priced at $495, in addition to a seat-related donation between $250 and $750). Also, the school is now advertising a $198 season ticket package (it looks like those seats are available in sections 333, 325 and 326).

“The 2016 pricing changes reflect a priority of affordability and accessibility. As Coach Petersen continues to build on a base of exciting young talent, we want to make sure that Husky Football stays accessible for families and new fans who want to be part of the ascent,” Lance Lopes, senior associate athletic director, said in a statement. “Fortunately we have been able to do that while remaining flat in all non-premium seating as well.”
