Huskies Fall Short Against No. 10 Ohio State
Sept. 15, 2007
Washington started out hot but couldn't contain No. 10 Ohio State in the second half, falling 33-14 at Husky Stadium.
Linebacker James Laurinaitis intercepted Washington's Jake Locker twice deep in Buckeyes territory. Last season's Nagurski Award winner as the nation's best defensive player also had a key sack of the Huskies' redshirt freshman star during the decisive sequence of the third quarter.
Ohio State (3-0) tied their school record for consecutive wins in the regular season with 21, matching a mark set from 1967-69.
Todd Boeckman, making his first career road start, threw for two touchdowns as the Buckeyes won for the 22nd time in 23 games overall -- the only loss coming when Florida ran over them in last January's national championship game.
Washington (2-1) was inside Ohio State territory six times against the nation's top-ranked defense. The Huskies got 102 yards rushing and 153 yards passing from Locker in the loss.
