Player of the game

Washington quarterback Keith Price completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 291 yards and three touchdowns, the last of which broke the UW season record for scoring passes with 29, topping Cody Pickett's mark of 2002. Linebacker Princeton Fuimaono tied for Husky team high in tackles with nine, four of them for losses.

Play of the game

At the 11:37 mark of the first quarter, Washington linebacker Thomas Tutogi blocked Dan Wagner's punt after the initial Washington State possession. The Huskies' Jesse Callier gathered it in at the WSU and breezed into the end zone, giving UW a 7-0 lead and it never trailed.

Turning point

Price hit UW freshman Kasen Williams in the left corner of the end zone for a 21-yard touchdown with 24 seconds left in the half to give the Huskies a 21-14 lead at the break after WSU had rallied from 14 points down to tie it with 2:05 before intermission.

Injury report

Neither team reported any major injuries of lasting impact.


"Not to take anything away from the Cougars, or that they didn't deserve it, but I just felt like our guys deserved it. ... I can't wait to figure out what bowl game we're going to." — Washington coach Steve Sarkisian.

Reap what you sow

WSU senior linebacker Alex Hoffman-Ellis, on the idea that CenturyLink Field hasn't been kind to the Cougars this year (they lost earlier to Oregon State, 44-21): "I don't think we've been very kind to it, you know?"
