Arizona State defeats Washington

Associated Press

SEATTLE — Steven Threet passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns Saturday night as Arizona State defeated Washington 24-14.

Threet fought through heavy rains most for the night to complete passes to nine different receivers in ending the Sun Devils’ three-game skid.

The Sun Devils (3-3, 1-2 Pac-10) dropped six passes in the first half in the downpour, but Threet still managed to throw for more than 200 yards and two touchdowns before the intermission.

Threet, who had thrown seven interceptions in his last two games, was intercepted midway through the fourth quarter by Cort Dennison. It was Threet’s only turnover on Saturday.

The Huskies (2-3, 1-1) went three-and-out and Arizona State capitalized with a 53-yard drive that set up a 23-yard field goal by Thomas Weber to give the Sun Devils a 10-point cushion.
