Anthony Gordon’s ascent to the top of the Pac-12 Conference record books is just about complete.
The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with quarterback Jake Browning, who went undrafted after a record-setting career at Washington. Browning will have the chance to compete with Sean Mannion and Kyle Sloter for the backup spots behind Kirk Cousins. Browning left the Huskies as their career leader in passing yards and pass efficiency. His 39 career wins were the most by a quarterback in Pac-12 history.
The Rose Bowl will be final collegiate start for Washington’s Jake Browning. Whether or not it will be for Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins remains a mystery.
What Browning’s legacy will be is up for debate. But what should it be?
Jake Browning has been the quarterback for more victories than any other player in Pac-12 Conference history.
This senior class has led the Huskies to 36 wins, just three wins shy of the school record over a four-year period.
Jake Browning was angry and probably had every right to be. After four seasons as Washington’s starting quarterback, the last thing Browning expected was to be benched because of the Huskies’ offensive woes. Instead of letting the benching a week ago against California fester, Browning responded as Washington hoped, throwing one touchdown and running for another in the Huskies’ 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday.
Chris Petersen tried to make it clear Monday that his decision to bench quarterback Jake Browning during Washington’s loss to California was an attempt to spark the Huskies’ sluggish offense and not an indictment of his fourth-year senior quarterback.
Jake Browning completed 23 of 25 passes for 277 yards and one touchdown, and No. 11 Washington was thoroughly dominant on both sides of the ball in a 35-7 rout of No. 20 BYU on Saturday night.
Veteran quarterback Tanner Mangum and the BYU Cougars (3-1) have been one of the big surprises during the first month of the regular season. Taking down the Washington Huskies (3-1) on the road – and picking up a second road win over a team ranked in the top 12 – would certainly vault BYU into an entirely different conversation.
Even back in the bad, bad days of 0-12 – just a decade ago, can you believe it? – the Washington Huskies did their best to pass themselves off as a college football blueblood. OK, purpleblood.
The No. 6 Huskies are heading back to Atlanta for their highly anticipated season opener against No. 9 Auburn on Saturday (12:30 p.m. PT, ABC), and UW coach Chris Petersen is expecting a similar type of test the Huskies had there 20 months ago when they lost to Alabama in the national semifinals.
When Myles Gaskin first arrived at Washington, the outside expectations for the Huskies were very different. They weren’t seen as an overwhelming favorite in the Pac-12.
I come to you today slightly puzzled, which, granted, is not an uncommon state of mind for me. The subject this time is Jake Browning.
Trace McSorley threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, Saquon Barkley ran for two more scores and No. 9 Penn State outlasted No. 12 Washington 35-28 in the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday.
A one-time Heisman Trophy front-runner in Penn State’s Saquon Barkley. Record-breaking receiver/punt returner Dante Pettis of Washington. Prolific quarterback on both teams; Jake Browning for Washington, Trace McSorley at Penn State. Program-building coaches in Washington’s Chris Petersen and Penn State’s James Franklin. What’s not to like?
Jake Browning lost yet another downfield option last week when sophomore wide receiver Quinten Pounds suffered the second major knee injury of his career. He’s out for the rest of the season.
Pete Kwiatkowski, who is tasked with designing a defensive scheme that will slow down Josh Rosen on Saturday, doesn’t have to search very far to find someone who favorably compares to the UCLA quarterback. “Our guy is pretty similar,” the Washington Huskies defensive coordinator said while making the comparison between Jake Browning and Rosen.
Rock bottom arrived on Jake Browning’s 52nd and final throw of the game. The pass ended up in the hands of an Arizona State player, Browning’s fourth interception of the afternoon, third in the game’s final 6 minutes. It cemented Washington’s 17-point collapse in a 27-17 loss to Arizona State in Tempe on Nov. 14 2015, and it left a young UW team with a 4-6 record with two regular-season games remaining.
When Washington quarterback Jake Browning scrambled to his right and lofted an 11-yard throw into a crowd in the end zone, it looked as if the pass would be intercepted and the Huskies had squandered an early scoring opportunity.
