Washington opens scoring with rushing TD

Washington strikes first in the Pac-12 title game against Colorado with on a 1-yard TD run from Lavon Coleman.

I was just thinking how Sefo Liufau is so good at protecting himself. He slides more than any quarterback I've seen this year. And then his ankle gets bent on the next play. Nothing he could do to protect himself.

With QB Sefo Liufau hurt, Colorado's backup is Steven Montez, who has seen significant action this season and played well: 8.0 yards per attempt, 9 TD passes.

ESPN Stats and Information  

This is the 8th time that Washington has scored a TD on its opening drive, tied with New Mexico, Louisiana Tech, Notre Dame, Western Kentucky and UTSA for the most in FBS.

Ted Miller ESPN Staff Writer 

Washington's first drive featured a pass interference penalty and 50 yards rushing, no yards passing and a touchdown. If the Huskies run well and force the Buffaloes to crowd the box, that will open up the potent deep passing game involving QB Jake Browning and receivers John Ross and Dante Pettis.

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

This is a match-up between Washington's offensive efficiency -- historic by some metrics -- and Colorado's league-leading defense. The Huskies land the first punch, tearing down the field for a score on only seven plays.

Colorado wins the toss. The Buffs are now an astonishing 12-1 in the coin toss this season. Their only coin flip loss was at USC.

Interception sets up Ohio TD

Bradd Ellis picks off a tipped pass by Zach Terrell and returns it 32 yards to set up Jordan Reid's second TD catch of the game. The Bobcats miss the PAT kick and trail Western Michigan 23-13 early in the third quarter.

Washington Purple at Levi's Stadium.

Quick review of College Football Playoff implications before this Pac-12 title kicks off: No. 4 Washington is likely win-and-in. No. 8 Colorado has a shot with a win, especially if No. 3 Clemson loses tomorrow, too. The Buffs' strength of record would be very formidable with a win tonight.

Broncos score in closing seconds of half

Zach Terrell hits Carrington Thompson near the sideline in the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown with 36 seconds left in the half. No. 17 Western Michigan leads Ohio 23-7 at halftime.

WMU WR Corey Davis put on a show in that first half. Route running, speed, production after the catch. Physical, too. He can play.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Western Michigan QB and WR ZachTerrell and Corey Davis connected for their 50th TD, one shy of the FBS record for most by a QB-receiver duo (Chase Clement and Jarrett Dillard at Rice, 51 from 2005 to 2008).
