Huskies run wild versus Beavers
It was reminiscent of the Iditarod Saturday in Corvallis with the Huskies running free, racking up 530 yards on the ground, second all-time in Washington history. Moreover, three rushers tallied over 140 yards on the game. That has to be some kind of record, right?
Lead back Bishop Sankey rushed for 179 yards and three touchdowns, tying former Husky great Napoleon Kaufman for the Washington football record for career touchdowns. Here's a replay of the record-tying touchdown:
Deontae Cooper was next in line, rushing for 166 yards and two touchdowns, including a big 70-yarder:
Finally, Dwayne Washington added 141 yards on 11 carries and two touchdowns. His 71-yarder was the longest of the night:
The Huskies are hoping it's even easier sledding next weekend when they encounter the Washington State Cougars in the annual Apple Cup.
