Washington Huskies

2. Washington Huskies (1-1; previous rank: 2) | National

Jake Browning bounced back from a Week 1 loss to Auburn with 313 yards and two touchdowns against North Dakota.

Last week: Beat North Dakota, 45-3

This week: at Utah, 7 p.m. Saturday

The Huskies’ Week 1 loss to Auburn will become less and less relevant in the Pac-12 landscape as conference play wears on. It will likely hinder Washington’s shot at the College Football Playoff, but it doesn’t take away from the Huskies as a Pac-12 favorite. They looked the part Saturday, with Jake Browning throwing for 313 yards and a pair of touchdowns and the ground game converting three scores of its own. If Browning can clean up his play in the pocket — he also threw two picks against North Dakota — and when the Huskies get Myles Gaskin going, this team should be able to put up with anyone. We’ll get a better barring of where this team is when it visits Utah this week. But for now, it’s Stanford, Washington, and everyone else.
