This game went in all sorts of strange directions. The Washington defense was incredible in the first quarter, the Arizona offense and defense were good in the second quarter, and the Washington offense was excellent in the third. In the end, the Huskies faced far too many passing downs on offense for my liking, but no matter which team had the ball, Washington was winning on passing downs. Excuse me, No. 7 Washington was winning...
