Washington finished the 2022 season with an 11-2 record, marking just the 5th time in school history that the Huskies have reached 11 wins. Kalen DeBoer is the first UW head coach to win a bowl game in his first season. Never before had UW won more than 8 games under a first-year head coach.
The Huskies finished with 702 yards of offense against a Washington State defense that led the Pac-12 in scoring defense at under 20 points per game. If not for two second-half turnovers by the Huskies, the margin of victory could have been much larger.
Penix threw for 408 yards and two touchdowns as Washington stopped a 13-game losing streak against ranked Oregon teams. The last win was in 2002 when the Huskies beat No. 23 Oregon 42-12. Washington was 0-7 against the Ducks when they're ranked in the top 10.
The Huskies head man along with some of his players, met with the media to discuss their 39-28 victory against the #11 Michigan State Spartans at Husky Stadium.
The biggest reason the offense is executing at a high level so far is the command and play of Penix Jr. You can really start to see the poise that he possesses in the pocket and he makes the right reads on a consistent basis.
