Arizona State put 21 points on the board against Washington in the first the half and held on to beat the Huskies 24-14. Washington never developed any rhythm on offense against Arizona State. Husky drives stalled repeatedly deep in ASU territory on a rainy night in Seattle.
Washington turned the ball over on downs three times, missed a FG, and had a pass intercepted in the end zone. A failed conversion on 4th and 12 with six minutes left in the fourth quarter pretty much ended the game for the Huskies.
ASU which had been suffering from red zone inefficiency coming into the game made the most of their opportunities. QB Steve Threat was 21-34 for 288 yards two TD's and one interception. His numbers could have been a lot better if his receivers hadn't dropped five balls. A fourth quarter interception by UW's Cort Dennison was his only miscue.
Jake Locker was 28-38 for 209 yards one TD and one interception and was sacked three times. He had 11 carries for only 6 total yards. ASU had him bottled up in the pocket most of the night. Chris Polk picked up 110 yards on 18 carries. Deandre Goodwin who was filling in for an injured Devin Aguilar had 8 receptions for 78 yards and one touchdown.
Next up for the Huskies is Oregon State who upset #9 Arizona on Saturday.
