The Washington Huskies allowed more than 300 rushing yards in a 53-24 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils.
Washington didn’t get it done. The Huskies starting QB Keith Price didn’t get it done. The Washington defense didn’t get it done. The coaching staff was also found wanting. All across the board, Washington was inferior to the Ducks (6-0) on October 12th.
No. 16 Washington (4-1, 1-1) will be looking to put the heartbreaking loss at No. 5 Stanford behind them as they host the second-ranked Ducks, a team that hasn’t lost on the road since falling 51-42 to Stanford in 2009, a span of 18 games.
The call was heartbreaking, especially after the fight the team showed for 58 minutes to give itself an opportunity to win.
Ty Montgomery had several drops and one of his worst games in a loss at Washington last season. A year later, he turned in a breakout performance that saved Stanford.
What the Huskies have going for them is an increase in offensive production thanks to the switch to an up-tempo scheme, a resurgence in Keith Price and a more experienced offensive line.
