VIDEO: Washington Quarterback Jake Browning Post-Game - Apple Cup

Dawgman.com spoke post-game with Washington Quarterback Jake Browning, who was 14-20 for 203 yards and one interception as the Huskies rolled over No. 20 Washington State 45-10 Friday in the 108th Apple Cup.

On the win “It was really good. Good to send our seniors off, last game at Husky Stadium. It was pretty cool. To win the Apple Cup and become bowl eligible was, you know.”

 

On his progression from Boise State until now “It was 12 games of experience different. There’s something to be said about experience and I think that’s helped a lot, just learning from mistakes.”

 

On Myles Gaskin “Myles (Gaskin) is obviously a very good running back. You guys all know that. Pretty humble, even-keel, and had a heck of a game.”

 

On the importance of the drive that Myles Gaskin pounded it in to make it 31-10 “I think it was huge and I think Myles would be the first one to say we took care of it up front when we needed to. It was one of the most important drives when it came down to it. Our line definitely stepped up. If there’s a whole Myles is going to find it. Great blocking on the perimeter and a great drive.”

 

On the win “Like I said, send our seniors off like that. I thought Jaydon Mickens played a great game and played really well, as well as all of our seniors like Sifa (Tufunga), Marvin (Hall), and everybody. All the seniors on defense too. For that, win the Apple Cup, and become bowl eligible, that’s a trifecta right there.”

 

On the pitch-option play “I don’t think it was supposed to look like that, but it worked.”

 

On the importance of bowl eligibility for this team “Huge. That’s one of our first goals, get to a bowl game and win the bowl game. We’ll see. I don’t know how it all works to be honest. This is my first time going about it. We’ll see.”

 

On if he sensed that Washington started to wear WSU down in the run game late “Yeah. I think we’ve been running the ball pretty well the whole time. I think it helped a lot that our defense forced seven turnovers.”
