Kasen Williams led all receivers with 80 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions while Bishop Sankey paced the Huskies' rushing attack by turning 23 carries into 139 yards. The Washington defense held its opponent to 141 yards of total offense. The unit was anchored by Travis Feeney, who recorded 10 solo tackles and a sack in the victory.
