VIDEO: QB Jake Browning Post-Game: BSU spoke post-game to Washington Freshman Quarterback Jake Browning after the Huskies lost a heartbreaker in their season-opener, a 16-13 loss to Boise State Friday night at Albertsons Stadium in Boise, Idaho. Browning finished the game 20-35 for 150 yards and one interception on the night.

On the defense giving them a chance in the second half “I thought our defense played really well. I don’t think they had the first half the wanted either, but they came back and battled. I thought everybody on the team battled. At the end of the day, you can battle but it’s still a loss, so you’ve got to make some changes and come back from there.”


On the result “We were only down by three. We got down to the 25 or something like that. We were in there. Personally, I don’t think I had a very good game. I think there are a lot of things we can fix as a team. But I though we battle hard and stuff like that. Boise’s a good team but we’ve got to finish. We have to start fast and we’ve got to finish. Offensively, I just thought I could have put (Cameron Van Winkle) in a better situation for an easier field goal.”


On when he found out he was starting “A week and a half ago.”


On winning the starting job “It was good, but it was Boise. It wasn’t like ‘here’s an easy first game,’ or anything like that. It was just getting ready for Boise, which we’ve been kind of doing all summer. There were three of us but now there’s only one, so here’s a little more leadership. We have a good team of leaders so I don’t think it was a lot of that. It felt good. Hard work paid off.”


On what stood out about Boise’s defense “They played very soft versus the long ball trying to make us sustain a drive. They’re obviously very experienced. You guys probably know all the stuff I’m going to say. They’re good but we should have taken advantage of better opportunities.”

On his interception “I saw the corner fall off and he played it well.” Top Stories
