From a 59-10 rout of the Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville to a thrilling 45-24 win over the Huskies in Seattle, to a pair of heartbreaking upset losses on the road against the Cardinal in Palo Alto and the Arizona Wildcats in Tucson, the Emerald’s staff photographers were on hand for every game throughout the season.

13 games played across seven states. Tens of thousands of photos taken. A trip to the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
