Two years later, it’s worth wondering what might have happened if Haener — a redshirt sophomore at the time of his transfer — would have stayed in Seattle, where he could have conceivably played through 2022.
Dylan Morris passed for 367 yards and three touchdowns, Jalen McMillan had 10 catches for 175 yards and a score, and Washington rebounded from two disappointing losses with a 52-3 win over Arkansas State on Saturday.
