Huskies Take Ducks To School

Washington used an explosive offense, led by sophomore QB Jake Browning who accounted for eight touchdowns, to blow out Oregon 70-21 and end 12 years of frustration...

Browning was stellar all night, hitting on 22 of his 28 attempts for 304 yards with six touchdowns while also rushing for two scores, and was the difference in the game.

Washington forced a turnover on the first play of the game as S Budda Baker picked off Oregon freshman Justin Herbert and never looked back.

After taking over on Oregon's 30, the Huskies scored on their fourth play as Browning went over from one yard out to go up 7-0 with a little over 90 seconds off the clock.

On the Huskies' next offensive drive, they went 67 yards in 10 plays as Browning hit WR John Ross for a short three-yard touchdown pass to put the Huskies up 14-0.

Not to be outdone, RB Myles Gaskin took a handoff over the left side and sliced up the Oregon defense for a 65-yard scoring run, essentially putting the game out of reach with two minutes left in the first quarter.

Gaskin finished the night with 197 yards and the one touchdown on just 16 touches.

Browning found Ross for a 15-yard touchdown early in the second quarter and added one more touchdown on the ground and another three-yarder to Ross, their third scoring connection of the night, to give Washington a 35-7 lead heading into halftime.

In addition to Browning and Gaskin's big nights, Ross finished with nine receptions for 94 yards and the three touchdowns while Dante Pettis had his best night as a Husky, hauling in eight receptions for 134 yards and two scores.

Defensively, Jojo McIntosh led the way with eight tackles while Joe Mathis added five stops including a sack and three tackles-for-loss.

Washington's 70 points is the most ever scored by a team in the Washington/Oregon rivalry and it is the first time since 1944 that the Huskies have scored that many points.

The Huskies (6-0) have a bye this coming week and then return home to face Oregon State on October 22nd.
