That's the day before the UW's Homecoming football game against Oregon, which kicks off at 12:30 p.m. at Husky Stadium.
"The University of Washington has a rich history of academic excellence, groundbreaking research, winning athletics, and life-changing innovation," the proclamation reads. "I urge all citizens to don purple and gold in honor of this world-class institution."
Governor Gregoire, a 1969 and '71 UW graduate, has now issued "Purple and Gold Day" proclamations each of the last three years.
