Two Marcus Peters interceptions help UW catch Georgia State
Coming off a one-game suspension for disciplinary reasons, Washington cornerback Marcus Peters was the lone bright spot for the Huskies in the first half Saturday against Georgia State. The junior grabbed two interceptions in a tough first half that saw the Huskies head into halftime trailing 14-0 on Pac-12 Networks.

Peters came into 2014 with sky high expectations after being named All-Pac-12 in 2013. He was projected by some media experts as a first round NFL Draft pick in 2015 and showed off that pro potential with his second interception of the game, which is shown above. Stretching to make the grab while dragging his toes just inside the sideline, the pick was so close that it was originally called an incompletion. The officials reversed the call after a review, giving Peters the 10th interception of his career.
The Huskies would end up turning things around in the second half en route to a 45-14 Washington win over Georgia State, but Peters’ heroics in the first half played a key role in limiting the hole that the Huskies had to crawl out of.
