Husky Game Awards: Cal

Otto Greule Jr

Bishop Sankey back to being Bishop Sankey, the kick return blocking was bad, Cory Littleton was awesome, Keith Price got his accuracy back, UW's defense was stout, Sark needs to get his guys out sooner, and Kasen Williams is likely done for the year.

Player of the Game: Bishop Sankey had perhaps his finest game, as he should have against Cal's porous run defense. He ripped runs of 42, 32, 22, 59, and 23 yards on his way to a career high 241 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Goat of the Game: The kick return blocking. John Ross had two nice returns called back on penalties, including one which he took to the house untouched where the penalty occurred nowhere near the play. UW still has not returned a kickoff for a TD since 2007.

Who Stepped Up: Cory Littleton. Deflected a couple of passes, had a couple sacks, was all over the field. He's continuing to improve as a player, and it was really nice to see him and UW's third stringers get after Jared Goff when they got into the game in the 4th quarter.

Jaydon Mickens also stepped up, and Cal had no answer for him. He torched their man coverage deep by simply running right by the defender assigned to him, en route to 6 catches for 180 yards and 2 TDs.

The Game Tipped When: Keith Price took the field and played with the accuracy we saw from him early in the season. As soon as he started completing short passes and got his confidence going, Cal didn't really have a prayer.

It Was Over When: UW's defense forced a punt or turnover on 11 of Cal's first 12 drives.

Surprise of the Game: Steve Sarkisian keeping Price and Sankey in the game as long as he did. There wasn't any reason for it. The game was pretty well in hand, and these are your stars. They should have been pulled about three drives earlier than they were.

WTF Moment of the Game: Not really a WTF moment, but certainly upsetting: Kasen Williams leaving the game early when he got tangled up with a Cal defender in the air, came down on his left foot, and suffered a Lisfranc injury which could very well -- and likely will -- keep him out for the rest of the year.
