The BYU Cougars came into Husky Stadium with a game plan to run the ball, but it would be the Washington Husky defense that would rule the day as they stymied the Cougar attack holding them to 34 yards on just 28 carries.
The Husky defense looked fantastic against the pass as they held Tanner Mangum to 160 yards and just 7 first downs.
“As a team we made way too many mistakes to even have a chance in this game,” BYU Coach Sitake said. “Washington is a great team and you can’t give great teams that opportunity otherwise what happened tonight happens.”
QB Jake Browning would have one of the All-Time greatest passing games by a QB as he completed 92% of his passes going 23 of 25 for 277 yards and a touchdown. Browning also carried the ball for a 9 yard touchdown.
Brwoning is now the UW record holder for passing yards moving past Cody Pickett’s previous mark of 10,220.
“I think you saw one of the better versions of his whole game,” Washington coach Chris Petersen said of Browning.
Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed ran crazy giving the Huskies of their most complete performances ever. Gaskin would get a TD and Ahmed would tack on 2 more.
