No. 14 Washington uses big plays to rout Rutgers 48-13

Jake Browning threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns, John Ross caught two touchdowns and returned a kickoff for another score in his first game since the end of the 2014 season, and No. 14 Washington looked every bit a Top 25 team with a 48-13 rout of Rutgers on Saturday.

Taylor said he was “a nervous wreck” before UW’s game last Friday night against Boise State, experiencing what he described as a “helpless” feeling, knowing there was nothing more he could do for the kid who threw 229 touchdown passes at Folsom the past three seasons.

Young UW freshman QB Browning has sharp day in camp

Jake Browning graduated from Folsom High School in December, led his team to California’s Division 1 state championship later that month, enrolled as a freshman at the University of Washington in January, then participated in 15 spring practices as a quarterback for a Pac-12 football team right about the time most kids his age were planning their Senior Skip Day. Browning has kept his accomplishments in perspective, as he expressed Monday in his first interviews with reporters.

4-star QB commits to UW for 2015
