Chris Petersen is always recruiting, although his pitch so far this season has been focused on a different group. It’s been directed at the fans of No. 8 Washington in the hopes of getting people to show up for a non-conference schedule that’s less than appealing despite the Huskies (2-0) having their highest ranking in 15 years.
College football box score from No. 14 Washington’s 48-13 win over Rutgers on Sept. 3, 2016.
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.
The Washington Huskies have spent the offseason hearing all the talk about this being the year they jump from being a .500 program and back into the elite of the Pac-12, potentially contending for a conference title and Rose Bowl berth.
The focus is now. It’s this final game, this matchup, this moment. No more. At least, that’s what the Washington Huskies are saying in the buildup to Saturday’s Heart of Dallas Bowl against Southern Mississippi.
Scoring, in any fashion at any time, has been a laborious proposition for the Washington Huskies this season. They rank 11th in the Pac-12 with an average of just 24.0 points per game, and they average only 18.8 against conference opponents.
SEATTLE – The throw was supposed to go elsewhere, a play-action pop-pass designed for tight end David Ajamu that would have relied more on superior scheme than flawless execution. Instead, Jake Browning turned it into Exhibit A – or maybe more like Exhibit F or G or H – of just how much the Washington Huskies have upgraded at the quarterback position since last season.
SEATTLE – It was hard enough for Folsom High School co-coach Troy Taylor to watch his former star quarterback, Jake Browning, make his collegiate debut last week for the Washington Huskies. 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.
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.
SEATTLE – It didn’t take Washington Huskies football coach Chris Petersen long to land an oral commitment from a quarterback for the 2015 recruiting class. Jake Browning, one of the top recruits on the West Coast, announced on Monday that he plans to play football for UW.
