Huskies turn broken play into crazy TD

Washington QB Jake Browning looks like he's trying to throw the ball away, but instead John Ross makes the one-handed grab and takes it 19 yards to increase its lead over Colorado to 31-7 in the Pac-12 title game.

P.J. Fleck says he won't be watching the AAC title game tomorrow to figure out if his team is headed to the Cotton Bowl. He'll be wearing a "cotton shirt, cotton socks, cotton earmuffs."

Was that woo hing who made the TD-saving tackle on the CU kickoff return? He missed the tackle after Lindsay collected the fumble. But then he got up and chased down a running back. Great hustle play.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

That Colorado kick return had two separate 40-plus yard returns in one play: One for 42 yards and another for 48, but no touchdown.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Last 2 plays: One of worst throws of Jake Browning's career goes for a TD pass, and a fumble leads to a 98-yard kick return. The Pac-12 title game has gotten weird.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Well, that was worth the first 40 minutes of the game. John Ross can make magic.

Ted Miller ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

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.

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.
