Last week: Beat Arizona State, 27-20
This week: No. 20 BYU, 5:30 p.m. Saturday
Jake Browning and Myles Gaskin were effective enough last weekend, and the Huskies shut down Manny Wilkins and ASU to stay on track in conference play. Browning’s clean stat sheet — three touchdowns to no interceptions — is all Washington needs to stay competitive. On Saturday, Browning joined Cody Pickett as the only UW quarterbacks to top 10,000 passing yards in his career. Ben Burr-Kirven had 20 tackles — yes, twenty — as well as a pair of forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Talk about defensive player of the week. The Huskies have one more hurdle — a game against ranked BYU — before entering the heart of the Pac-12 schedule. They’re starting to look like the Washington team some projected as a College Football Playoff contender.
