Washington Falls To Arizona State, 35-30

Nov 13, 2021

SEATTLE (AP) -- Rachaad White rushed for 184 yards and two touchdowns and Arizona State erased a 14-point deficit to beat Washington 35-30 on Saturday night at Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium.

The Sun Devils used a 9-minute, 20-play drive to pull within three midway through the fourth quarter, then completed the comeback on White's 10-yard touchdown run with 1:11 left. Arizona State (7-3, 5-2 Pac-12) remains in contention for a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with two games left.

UW (4-6, 3-4) must win both of its remaining games to reach bowl eligibility. Trying to avoid their first losing season since 2009, the Huskies turned turmoil into motivation as they jumped to a 14-0 lead. But many of the problems that have plagued Washington this season re-emerged as mistakes proved costly.

Morris outraced the Sun Devils defense to the pylon on a bootleg to make it 14-0 with 5:06 left in the first quarter. He was 7 of 9 for 67 yards on the first two drive and the Huskies had 127 yards in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Morris finished with 151 total yards passing, and ASU put the game out of reach with a pick-6 with 32 seconds left.


Washington: At Colorado next Saturday at 12 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Networks.
