Washington football team beats Alabama in bowling, go-kart racing

The Washington football team enters the College Football Playoff as underdogs against top-ranked Alabama, but they were able to get the early competitive edge on Monday night during Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl festivities.

The two teams competed in bowling and go-kart racing, with the Huskies getting the better of the Crimson Tide in both cases.

Could this create some positive momentum for the Huskies?
