No. 12 Oregon can potentially put the Pac-12 North race to bed with a victory over No. 25 Washington on Saturday.
On Oct. 13, 2018, Trey Adams wasn’t hunting ducks.
The Seattle Times reported on Aug. 31 that Ty Jones — a 6-foot-4, 213-pound junior wide receiver — would likely miss the majority of the 2019 season with a dislocated lunate bone and torn ligaments in his right wrist. Indeed, the Provo, Utah, product has not appeared in Washington’s first seven games this season, though head coach Chris Petersen said he has been practicing fully for several weeks.
At least for now. The Huskies will head into their vital showdown with Oregon on Saturday believing – with evidence to back it up this time – that they can indeed be a fully-functioning offense.
The Huskies snapped one streak and continued another with their 51-27 win at Arizona.
The answer is hardly obvious – and six games in, that’s the issue.
The question came in the closing minutes of Chris Petersen’s Monday news conference.
The Cardinal extended their home winning streak to six games, dating to 2007, against the Huskies with a plodding, methodical offense that kept Washington quarterback Jacob Eason on the sidelines for long chunks of the game.
The Huskies have had some success against the Cardinal over the past decade but haven’t won on The Farm since 2007.
Ty Jones spent the first five weeks of the 2019 season listed as a second-string wide receiver on UW’s official depth chart.
Fight on? Fight over. With 2:20 left in the fourth quarter of Washington’s 28-14 win over USC on Saturday, UW freshman safety Cameron Williams leaped to secure his second interception of the day. At the edge of his own end zone, Williams tumbled to the turf, sprang up and flipped the football behind his back.
Salvon Ahmed rushed for a career-high 153 yards including an 89-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and No. 17 Washington beat No. 21 Southern California 28-14 on Saturday.
