Percy Allen lists his takeaways from Washington’s victory Saturday over the Buffs that took place in Boulder, and extended the program’s winning streak to five games. They include David Crisp seeming to be unable to miss from beyond the arc, Jaylen Nowell’s bounceback performance from a rough outing against Utah, and the relatively dreadful state of the Pac-12.
Christian Caple takes a stab at determining who is most likely to assume starting roles for the Dawgs this fall. I suspect that most discussion will gravitate toward his choice of Jacob Eason as Washington’s starting quarterback, but I’m most interested in his prediction that Aaron Fuller, Ty Jones and Andre Baccellia will all fend off challenges to usurp their starting jobs at wide receiver. Ultimately, I think at least one player among Austin Osborne, Trey Lowe, Marquis Spiker, and Terrell Bynum will have a shot at elevating themselves into a starting role, if only by building an especially good chemistry with Washington’s new starting quarterback, whether that’s Eason or someone else entirely.
