Washington QB Jake Browning might be seeing his Heisman Trophy chances fading, but he's not the only guy out of sync in the Huskies passing game. Receiver John Ross has 2 drops and just one catch for three yards. No. 2 receiver Dante Pettis has one catch for nine yards. But that doesn't matter when the running game and defense are humming.

Washington's secondary is playing at an elite level. The Huskies have picked off two passes and are completely choking away Sefo Liufau's throwing options in the second half.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Jake Browning is 4-for-15 at 2.5 yards per attempt, yet Washington is ahead 24-7.

Washington opens second half with pick-6

Washington's Taylor Rapp scores on a pick-6 from the first play from scrimmage in the second half to increase its lead to 21-7 over Colorado.


David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Colorado was holding its ground, until QB Sefo Liufau blinked twice. That pair of interceptions has Washington in firm control of this game at 24-7, even despite a subpar performance from Jake Browning and some John Ross drops.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Sefo Liufau is back in the game -- and his first throw is a pick six from UW's Taylor Rapp.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Washington is averaging 6.2 yards per play when it runs and 3.1 yards per play when it passes.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Yards per play at half: Washington 4.8, Colorado 4.1

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

At halftime, this game is a tractor pull that Colorado is not upset with: The Buffs get the ball to open the second half, and they've held Jake Browning to 4-of-12 passing for only 38 yards. But Washington should maintain the upper hand if it can keep running at 5.5 yards per carry.

Jake Browning is 3-for-10 at 2.9 yards per attempt against this nation-leading Colorado secondary.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Western Michigan hangs on against Ohio, 29-23, to move to 13-0 and win its first MAC title since 1988. Will it be enough to get them to the Cotton Bowl? Navy can rock that boat tomorrow afternoon.

Browning hits Daniels for Washington TD

Jake Browning hasn't been as prolific as usual, but he did connect with Darrell Daniels on a 15-yard TD pass to put Washington back on top of Colorado 14-7.

Jay MacIntyre, son of Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre, played his HS ball close to here in San Jose because his dad's former job was at San Jose State. MacIntyre makes a huge third down catch.

Washington QB Jake Browning's second completion was a 15-yard touchdown pass for a 14-7 lead in the second quarter over Colorado, but the Huskies throw game has been struggling The Huskies have rushed for 148 yards and passed for just 26. Not only is Browning off target — he's 2 for 7 — but he's been sacked twice. Browning's best play before the TD toss was a 19-yard run on third and 16. Myles Gaskin has rushed for 78 yards and Lavon Coleman has 68. Entering the game, Colorado was tied No. 2 in the Pac-12, allowing just 3.9 yards per rush.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

Last week against Washington State, Washington threw for 342 yards and rushed for 168. Tonight in the Pac-12 championship, the game plan is the opposite. With 6:48 left in the first half, Washington has rushed 26 times for 148 yards and QB Jake Browning has completed just two passes for 26 yards.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Washington: 148 rush yards, 26 pass yards

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Would love to see Lavon Coleman's yards after contact. The way the Huskies are pounding the ball sets them up well for the fourth quarter. They already have run it more than 20 times. Takes a toll.
