In its third season under head coach Jim Lambright, the team compiled a 7–4–1 record, finished in a tie with USC for first place in the Pacific-10 Conference, and outscored its opponents 312 to 280.[1]

Quarterback Damon Huard was selected as the team's most valuable player. Ernie Conwell, Deke Devers, Stephen Hoffmann, and Richard Thomas were the team captains. After two years of bowl probation, the Huskies returned to the postseason at the Sun Bowl, but fell to Iowa.[2]
