Washington junior QB Jake Browning completed just 11-of-21 passes for 160 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 37-10 victory over Colorado.

Browning (6'3/200) also ran for nine yards. If it's possible for one team to have another player's number, you might be able to argue that Colorado has figured Browning out. Too bad no one outside of Alabama and maybe USC can say the same thing, at least if you're thinking like the opponent. Browning did salvage his day with a 43-yard bomb to Quinton Pounds that gave the Huskies a 17-7 lead in the third quarter. He'll more than likely be back to putting up impressive numbers next week against the woeful defense of Oregon State.

Washington junior RB Myles Gaskin rushed 27 times for 202 yards and two scores in Saturday's 37-10 route over Colorado.

Gaskin (5'10/190) hasn't gotten off to a huge start in terms of yardage, but that changed on Saturday against the Colorado defense. His patience and vision was on full display, consistently finding late holes against the Buffaloes. His first touchdown was a short one-yard plunge to tie things up at 7-7, and his second touchdown was an impressive sweep of 57 yards to make it 37-10 Huskies. Gaskin started slow in 2016 as well before finishing with excellent numbers, and you should expect the same thing in 2017.

Washington junior WR Chico McClatcher (undisclosed) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Colorado.

McClatcher sat last weekend, but HC Chris Petersen said early in the practice week that the team was hopeful he would be able to suit up against the Buffs on Saturday. It looks like that will be the case barring a late setback.
Sep 23 - 9:48 PM

Washington redshirt freshman CB Byron Murphy is expected to miss six weeks with a broken foot.

Beat writer Adam Jude states Murphy fractured his fifth metatarsal in practice this week and "the emerging star" will miss Saturday's Pac-12 opener against Colorado. Sophomore Austin Joyner likely steps into the starting role.
Sep 23 - 8:38 AM

Washington redshirt sophomore WR Andre Baccellia (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Colorado.

Baccellia (5'10/170) sat against Fresno State this past Saturday due to the injury concern. His loss would be mostly a depth blow for the Huskies. In two games this season, the redshirt sophomore has caught six passes for 69 yards.
Sep 22 - 8:00 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Washington senior WR Dante Pettis is "flying up draft boards."

Pettis (6'1/185) has stepped up with the departure of John Ross this season, and he's done it beautifully -- through three contests, the senior wideout has logged a 12-209-3 receiving line and scored three touchdowns, with one punt-return score in every one of Washington's games, to boot. His draft process is going to be a fascinating one. Pauline stamped him with a third-round grade prior to the season, but we wouldn't be surprised if some second- or even first-round talk starts to bubble to the surface should he continue to impress.
Sep 22 - 3:13 PM

Washington HC Chris Petersen said that he is hopeful that junior WR Chico McClatcher (undisclosed) will be able to play against Colorado on Saturday.

McClatcher (5'7/179) did not suit up for last weekend's win over Fresno State. Sounds like he will be something of a game-time decision for Saturday. The junior wideout has caught six passes for 84 yards in two games this season.
Sep 22 - 2:28 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that "most" west coast scouts believe Washington junior T Trey Adams is a "lock" first-round prospect.

Scouts are intrigued, Pauline writes, by Adams' "size, ability in pass protection and future potential." The 6-foot-8, 320-pound Adams struggled in the opener against Rutgers but has since gotten back on track. "No one has told me Adams is perceived as a can’t-miss left tackle, but all agree he will be a starter somewhere at the next level," Pauline wrote. "The expectations from those close to the situation is Adams will enter the draft off a good campaign." Adams ranked as the No. 22 overall prospect on Mel Kiper's first Big Board.

Washington redshirt junior DL Vita Vea has received "volatile" draft grades according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Pauline notes that Vea (6'4/346) can be an "overwhelming force" on defense, and that despite his size he's not limited to certain schemes or situations. He also notes that it doesn't appear that Vea's consistency has been a "huge problem" in the scouting community. "In other words, he plays like a world beater on one set of downs then looks like an egg beater the next set of series," Pauline said. Vea is unquestionably one of the most talented players in the Pac-12, but if he's going to cement his status as a top 15 pick, he's going to have to show more consistent effort as conference play opens up on Saturday against Colorado.
Sep 21 - 9:39 PM

Washington junior RB Myles Gaskin scored three times on Saturday in a 48-16 win over Fresno State.

Gaskin (5/10/190) didn't have a huge game in terms of yardage (56 yards on eight carries), but finding the end zone three times is a quality game for anyone. His first score was a 28-yard sweep around the left side to put the Huskies up 7-0 early in the first. A few minutes later, he scored on a seven-yarder up the middle to make it 20-0 Washington in the middle of the quarter. His final score was on a quick slant from quarterback Jake Browning just before the end of the first half, giving the Huskies a commanding 41-7 lead.
Sep 17 - 1:39 AM

Washington junior QB Jake Browning completed 19-of-22 passes for 256 yards and four touchdowns in a 48-16 rout of Fresno State on Saturday.

Browning could have had an even bigger day, but after completed a 73-yard bomb to Dante Pettis to make it 48-7 early in the third, he was done for the day. He was once again clinical, hitting receivers on time and occasionally running guys open with his feet. He found Pettis three times --twice on gorgeous fade routes -- and also found running back Myles Gaskin on a slant in tight coverage. Browning will next get a tough test when the Huskies travel to Colorado next Saturday.
Sep 17 - 1:12 AM

Washington senior WR Dante Pettis caught five passes for 92 yards and three touchdowns, and also returned a punt for a touchdown in a 48-16 rout of Fresno State on Saturday.

The punt return gives Pettis (6'1/185) eight in his career, which ties Wes Welker and Antonio Perkins for the most in NCAA history. It's also the third straight game he's returned a punt for a touchdown. Oh, and Pettis also scored three touchdowns on passes from Jake Browning, including a 73-yarder that put the Huskies up 48-7 and ended both Browning and Pettis's night. If that wasn't enough, he also completed a 36-yard pass to freshman Hunter Bryant. That's a pretty full day. He's one of the best -- and most underrated -- receivers in the country.
Sep 17 - 1:07 AM

Washington secondary coach Jimmy Lake said that sophomore DB Myles Bryant reminds him of former star S Budda Baker in his ability to serve as coach-on-the-field.

"The guys love him. They see how hard he works in the weight room, on the field. He’s smart," Lake said. "He knows his position, he knows other people’s positions, so he can make the checks, make the calls." Bryant (5'8/180), a former walk-on, saw the field in 11 games as a true freshman and is off to a hot start this season, having recorded 10 tackles and a pass defended in two games while starting at nickleback. Said Lake, "We’re really, really excited about him."
Sep 15 - 6:27 PM

Washington redshirt junior T Kaleb McGary is a "quick, explosive blocker who moves well on his feet," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

McGary started every game at right tackle last year and he's done the same so far this year. "Strong at the point, he’s a solid position blocker who seals opponents from the action while also anchoring in pass protection," Pauline wrote. "McGary is susceptible to inside moves, so a switch of positions to offensive guard is possible."
Sep 15 - 4:14 PM

Washington redshirt junior DL Vita Vea was ranked the top defensive prospect in the Pac-12 and third-best overall by Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

The only two players ranked ahead of Vea are quarterbacks: USC's Sam Darnold and UCLA's Josh Rosen. With Vea's size (6'4/346), speed (ran a 4.8 40) and ability to pressure the quarterback and stop the run, it wouldn't be a surprise if Vea ends up being one of the top draft defensive lineman come April, assuming he enters the draft.
