Washington redshirt senior DE/LB Azeem Victor remains suspended this week, according to HC Chris Petersen.

Victor (6'3/240) was suspended indefinitely last week following an arrest on suspicion of DUI. This is the second time Victor has been suspended this year. Even on the field, he's had a disastrous campaign. Prior to the arrest, Victor lost his ILB job and moved to DE as a rotational pass rusher.

Washington senior WR Dante Pettis caught six passes for 94 yards on Saturday in a 33-30 victory over Utah on Saturday.

He also added 34 yards on two carries. Amazingly, it's only the third time this year that Pettis (6'1/195) has gone over 90 yards receiving. He made several impressive back-shoulder catches from quarterback Jack Browning, including one on the game-winning drive for the Huskies. Pettis will look to keep the good run going next week in the Apple Cup against Washington State.

Washington junior RB Myles Gaskin caught six passes for 114 yards and a score and ran for 52 yards and two more scores in a 33-30 victory over Utah on Saturday.

There are some analysts who believe that Gaskin need to work on his receiving skills at the next level. Those analysts better study Saturday's tape. Gaskin was excellent in the passing game, making plays on screens and scoring on a 76-yard wheel route from Jake Browning to tie the game at 23-23. His second rushing touchdown was on a wildcat formation dive that tied the game 30-30. The 5-foot-9, 190 pound tailback gets a chance to win his third Apple Cup next week against Washington State.

Washington junior QB Jake Browning completed 26-of-35 passes for 352 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-30 victory over Utah on Saturday.

This was a fantastic game, and a game that ended with Browning (6'3/200) showing the best arm strength he has all season. Trailing 30-23, he threw several dimes to Husky receivers, setting up the game-winning touchdown. Then, after Utah called timeout, Browning got the Huskies into field goal range with two excellent throws to give Washington the win. This was the Browning we saw in 2016. A showdown with rival Washington State takes place next week.

Washington redshirt senior DL Azeem Victor has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest on suspicion of DUI on Sunday morning.

Victor (6'3/240) was booked at 4:16 on Sunday morning after being arrested for the alleged DUI. This is just another misstep in what's been a trying season for the redshirt senior, who had lost his inside linebacking gig -- this after being named a first-team preseason All-American by the Associated Press-- and has been working as a rotational member of the defensive line. While it's been a letdown campaign for the NFL hopeful, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Victor still has enough upside for a Day 2 selection. This arrest could certainly impact his stock into the spring depending on how the rest of the evaluating process plays out.

Washington HC Chris Petersen wants to get freshman RB/WR Salvon Ahmed the ball more going forward.

After a breakout game where Ahmed ran for 84 yards against Oregon, the talented freshman only got one touch in the loss to Stanford. Outside of Dante Pettis and Myles Gaskin, the Huskies are lacking in speed options, so it only makes sense to try and get the ball to Ahmed in space to see if he can help quarterback Jake Browning move the ball down the field more consistently. Expect to see him get a significantly higher total of carries -- with some receptions possibly sprinkled in -- on Saturday against Utah.

Washington junior RB Myles Gaskin must work on his pass-catching, writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, but "he’s a game breaker for the next level."

Gaskin rushed for 120 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries against Stanford on Friday and is up to 1,038 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns on the season. Pauline believes he'll be a "situational ball carrier" in the NFL with the ability to "turn the perimeter then run to daylight."
Nov 13 - 3:03 PM

Washington junior RB Myles Gaskin rushed for 120 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries in the school's 30-22 loss to Stanford on Friday.

Gaskin scored all three of the Huskies touchdowns and managed his high yardage total despite not tallying a run over 18 yards. He did a great job utilizing his blocks downfield, going as far as putting his hand on his offensive lineman's back and cutting off it for a nice gain. Gaskin did fumble in the fourth quarter, possibly costing the Huskies a chance to inch closer to a win.
Nov 11 - 10:14 AM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline still views Washington redshirt senior LB/DE Azeem Victor as a Day 2 selection.

Pauline notes that there are some in the scouting community who are disappointed in the work Victor has put in this season. The analyst does not count himself among that party, writing that the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder "made a swift recovery from what looked like a gruesome injury (a fractured leg) last November and is a dominant linebacker at full health." Victor has registered 28 tackles, a sack and three passes defended in eight games this season. He was suspended for the opener.

Washington senior WR Dante Pettis was one of four finalists announced on Thursday for the Hornung Award.

It isn't a big surprise, considering that the award goes to the most versatile player in college football. Not only is Pettis (6'1/185) one of the better receivers in the country, he broke the record for most returns for touchdowns in a career last week against Oregon (Nine). The other nominees are Penn State's Saquon Barkley, North Carolina State's Nyheim Hines and Iowa State's Joel Lanning.
Nov 9 - 8:01 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Washington senior WR Dante Pettis will likely need to scorch the 40-yard dash at the Combine if he's to be drafted in the top half of the second round.

Pauline currently has Pettis stamped with a third-round grade. If the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder is to outperform that grade and move up the ladder, the analyst believes he'll need to show off speed in the 4.30's in the 40-yard dash at the Combine. Pettis is fresh off setting the NCAA record for career punt-return touchdowns, having just scorched Oregon for a 64-yarder on Saturday to give him nine for his time with the Huskies.
Nov 8 - 9:26 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline views Washington senior LB Keishawn Bierria as a Day 2 selection for the draft.

"Many question Bierria’s speed and 40 time, but his instincts and football intelligence are top-notch," writes Pauline, who has not shifted from his offseason opinion that the 6-foot-1, 280-pounder will be off the board by the time Day 3 rolls around in the spring. Bierria has registered 32 tackles and a sack in nine games this season.
Nov 8 - 8:48 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Washington redshirt junior DL Vita Vea will declare for the draft after the season.

"Scouts feel Vea, who considered entering last April’s draft, will be selected in the top half of round one," Pauline writes. Back in September, the analyst termed Vea's stock as "volatile," as the 6-foot-5, 332-pounder was receiving scouting reports ranging across the board. Apparently, the general consensus has begun to swing in Vea's favor. Pauline hears that the defensive lineman could potentially rise as high as the No. 8 overall pick and that he should be off the board in the mid-teens. He believes that Vea's "raw athleticism, talent and ability to develop into a multi-scheme, three-down defender" will ultimately sway NFL teams more than questions about his consistency.
Nov 8 - 5:43 PM

Washington redshirt senior Azeem Victor has moved from LB to DE and hasn't taken a snap at ILB in weeks.

The goal is to use Victor as a pass rusher on Friday. It hasn't been a "clean" collegiate career for Victor, who missed the opener due to suspension as well as last year's bowl game with a fractured right leg. If successful, Victor has added an element to his evaluation.
Nov 8 - 8:15 AM

Washington junior QB Jake Browning completed 11-of-19 passes for 204 yards with two touchdowns and a pick in a 38-3 rout of Oregon on Saturday.

Browning (6'3/200) was much more active in this game than he was against UCLA, when the Huskies realized there was no reason to pass the football. It was a rainy day in Seattle, but Browning did miss on a couple of throws, including a potential touchdown in the first quarter to wideout Dante Pettis. He made up for it in the third quarter, throwing a dime to Pettis from 47 yards out, and connecting on a screen pass to Levon Coleman on a 31-yard touchdown. With Pettis the only real weapon in the passing game right now, you're not going to see Browning put up the type of numbers he did in 2016, but he's still certainly one of the better quarterbacks in the Pac-12, if not the nation. Browning and Washington get Stanford on Friday.
