This was a much-needed victory for the Washington Huskies football program, to show that they were making progress. Coming off a bye week and being well-rested and healthy, this was the Huskies best chance to pull off a good win and they didn't seize the opportunity.
This game was for sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 North and the Huskies surrendered a nine-game winning streak against Oregon State. It's the first time in Beavers history that they have led the division at any point.
Any way you slice it, a conference win is a conference win. It was nice for the Huskies to get that monkey off their back, with losing the last two contests to the Bears by a combined total of 3 points.
This was just what the doctor ordered for the Washington Huskies. A complete beatdown of an inferior opponent in all three phases of the game.
Any way you slice it, the Huskies are now 0-2 on the season, and at the worst, they should be 1-1 right now. Playing at "The Big House" can be a tough experience for opposing teams. Once again, it just seemed like the team waited too long to get anything going, instead of chipping away at the score methodically throughout the game.
