Washington received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DT Faatui Tuitele.

Tuitele (6'4/299) is a considerable get for Washington, as he picks the Huskies over a top five that also had Ohio State, Clemson, Alabama and Texas. He's ranked the 40th best player on ESPN's top 300, and the fourth best defensive tackle. He joins highly-recruited DT Jacob Bandes as four-star DT commits, as the Huskies will be losing Greg Gaines and a few other interior players. Washington's class now ranks 17th on 247 Sports list, with several other high-profile players still in play for Chris Petersen and company.

Washington sophomore RB Salvon Ahmed carried the ball nine times for 75 yards with two touchdowns in a 42-23 victory over Oregon State on Saturday.

Ahmed was a touchdown vulture in the first quarter, scoring twice from short yardage after long runs by Myles Gaskin. Outside of the scores, Ahmed was bottled up until an impressive 59-yard burst that showed off his impressive speed. Ahmed should see a decent amount of touches next Friday in a big showdown with Washington State.

Washington senior QB Jake Browning completed 17-of-23 passes for 242 yards with three scores in a 42-23 victory over Oregon State on Saturday.

Browning was outstanding -- particularly in the first half -- and has his second three-score passing game of the season. He also ran for 30 yards, and he showed the accuracy and poise that made him a star as a sophomore. If Browning plays like this next Friday, the Huskies have an excellent chance of upsetting Washington State and playing for a conference championship.

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin ran for 135 yards and a score on 18 carries in a 42-23 victory over Oregon State on Saturday.

Gaskin looked like he was going to have an all-timer early, rushing for over 100 yards on his first three carries. Give the Beavers credit for shutting down the run game for the most part after that, but the damage was done. His touchdown was on a wildcat keeper in the third quarter from six yards out to open the lead to 42-16. Gaskin and the Huskies have a massive game on Friday against rival Washington State. The winner will play in the conference championship game.

Washington senior LT Trey Adams (back) made his first appearance of the season during Saturday's game against Oregon State.

Adams, considered to be one of the best tackles in college football before the season began, has been out all year due to a back injury suffered prior to Washington's season opener against Auburn. And with the senior's 2017 season having ended prematurely due to a torn ACL, Saturday marked his first game action since last October. Due to the new rules on redshirting, Adams is still eligible to return in 2019 as a redshirt senior if that remains the plan for him.

Washington and Michigan State have scheduled a home-and-home series for 2028 and 2031.

Looking a decade down the road, Washington will take hosting duties on Sept. 9, 2028, with MSU set to repay the hospitality in East Lansing come Sept. 6, 2031. The programs last met in 1997 and have only played three times in total, with the Huskies holding a 2-1 lead in the series (as it were).

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang projects the Jets to take Washington redshirt sophomore CB Byron Murphy with the seventh pick in his latest mock draft.

When you give up 41 points to a team quarterbacked by Matt Barkley, you might need some help on the defensive end. In all seriousness, the Jets obviously have a need at cornerback, and many analysts believe that Murphy has the most upside of any prospect at that position right now. He's been an analytical star, and the tape will back up what those numbers say, with a few exceptions. He has two years of eligibility left after this year, but it wouldn't be a surprise if Murphy was playing on Sundays at this point next year.

Washington HC Chris Petersen told reporters during Monday's press conference that Washington senior DL Shane Bowman is "getting close" to a return.

Bowman broke his foot against Arizona State on September 22, and he hasn't been able to play since. Josiah Bronson has taken Bowman's place, but the Huskies have clearly missed the 6-foot-4, 291-pound senior. He's not a lock to return against Oregon State on Saturday, but there's at least a chance he returns, and if not, he could play in the Apple Cup against Washington State.
Nov 12 - 5:37 PM

Washington HC Chris Peterson said Monday that he believes senior LT Trey Adams (back) will return for a fifth season in 2019.

Adams (6'7/330) has not appeared in a game this season, as he suffered a back injury days prior to the Huskies' season opener against Auburn and ultimately had to undergo surgery. When asked about the senior left tackle's status for next season, Peterson said that he "thinks (returning for a fifth season) is the plan." Adams entered the season considered by some to rank among the top offensive tackles in college football.
Nov 5 - 4:53 PM

Washington senior QB Jake Browning completed 16-of-27 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and also rushed for a score in a 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday.

Browning started out red-hot; completing 7-of-9 passes to start the game, and opening the contest with a rushing touchdown. He threw his touchdown pass on the next drive, but after that, Stanford pressured the heck out of Browning, and he was forced to throw the ball away more often than he'd like. Still, a nice bounceback for the senior after the (probably unjustified) benching last week. Browning gets a week off before taking on Oregon State on November 17.
Nov 4 - 12:38 AM

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin ran for 148 yards and a touchdown in a 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday.

After missing the previous two games -- and a large portion of another -- with a shoulder injury, Gaskin (5'10/193) was back at it, and did he ever make a difference in this one. He helped the Huskies build a 21-0 lead, and he scored his sixth touchdown of the year on a six-yard run in the second quarter. Gaskin is as good as they come when he's healthy, and he sure looked healthy against the Cardinal. The 7-3 Huskies take on Oregon State on November 17 after a bye.
Nov 4 - 12:32 AM

Washington senior S Jojo McIntosh was ejected from Saturday's game against Stanford for targeting.

Because the infraction occurred during the first half, McIntosh will not miss any playing time beyond the remainder of Saturday's game. With 36 starts to his credit, the senior safety is one of Washington's most experienced defenders. As a result McIntosh's ejection, sophomore Brandon McKinney was inserted into the lineup.
Nov 3 - 10:08 PM

Washington sophomore TE Hunter Bryant (knee) took part in pregame warmups in advance of Saturday's game against Stanford.

Bryant has yet to play this season due to an offseason knee injury, but he has been getting closer and closer over the past few weeks. He will make his debut on Saturday barring a late scratch. UW will also be getting RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) back in this one.
Nov 3 - 8:56 PM

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) appears to be ready to go for Saturday's game against Stanford.

According to reports Gaskin was the running back for Washington's first 11-on-11 snap during the team's final warmup period, making it likely that he gets the starting nod against the Cardinal. The senior running back missed Washington's games against California and Colorado as a result of the injury. Even if Gaskin's available, Salvon Ahmed should continue to receive reps in the backfield.
Nov 3 - 8:51 PM

Washington senior RB Myles Gaskin (shoulder) went through the first round of pregame warmups ahead of Saturday's game against Stanford.

Gaskin, who Washington HC Chris Petersen said earlier in the week was "close-er-er" to making a return, is still considered to be questionable for Saturday's game. If the senior running back is forced to sit out for another week, look for Salvon Ahmed to make another start for the Huskies.
