VIDEO: Barr on UW

UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr says that Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins reminds him of UCLA's Joe Fauria from a year ago...

Anthony Barr spoke to us during Washington week.

On Washington's offense:
They're very talented, with a lot of weapons. Their tight end, their running back, quarterback. Receivers. The offensive line plays well together so it's going to be a good challenge for us.

On facing Austin Seferian-Jenkins:
He reminds me a lot of Joe Fauria, except more athletic. He runs better routes, I think, not to take anything from Joe, but I just think he's a great tight end, an NFL tight end and he's going to give us problems. We have to focus on him.

On if he wants to play some running back after last Saturday:
Nah, I'm going to leave that to Boobie (Myles Jack). That's his job. Let him spin.

On who's a better running back between he and Myles Jack:
Ah man. Um, I am.

On how much a threat of facing that kind of offensive package catches their attention:
It alerts you a little more. You're looking at him mostly.

On if teams are avoiding him:
It's a number of things. I put that on my shoulders. I shouldn't go an entire 60 minutes without making one tackle. I've just got to be better.

On what teams are doing specifically to avoid him:
It's not just their scheme, but our schemes. We got the win though.

On if the short week affects them:
I don't think so. I think if anything, it's better, lets get out there and play again.
