The Huskies met Seattle University twice in the spring season, winning 1-0 in the first game and tying 1-1 in the second.
The highly anticipated matchup will showcase national team talent on both sides of the pitch. The exhibition game will give the UW women's team good practice to play Pac-12 opponent Oregon State the following day.
