Washington Huskies Defeat Idaho, 42-23, in Monumental Win
Sept. 12, 2009
SEATTLE (AP) - Jake Locker made sure Washington wouldn't be sole owners of the longest losing streak in Pac-10 history.
Using his arm far more than his feet, Locker was 17 of 25 for 253 yards and three touchdowns, and the Huskies put a stop to the nation's longest losing streak at 15 games with a solid 42-23 win over Idaho on Saturday.
New coach Steve Sarkisian picked up his first win as head coach as Washington scored touchdowns on its first five possessions - minus a fumble on the opening kickoff of the second half - making up for a Huskies defense that Idaho showed continues to be leaky against the pass.
Locker tossed touchdowns of 24, 31 and 4 yards and added a 3-yard TD run of his own as Washington picked up its first victory since Nov. 17, 2007 when it beat California.
