Accolades have come in for Dillon Johnson after his breakout game against USC. And the theme for Saturday’s game against Utah is a ‘Salute to Service’.

The Huskies started the season talking about seeking a championship this year. With the win over USC, they should be believing that it is possible. But, there are still several more steps to take-especially the game this weekend against #18 Utah.

Football Dots

  • Dillon Johnson has some speed.
  • Johnson is also the Doak Walker Running Back of the Week for his performance against USC.

as well as the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week.

  • To celebrate Dillon’s performance, there is a giveaway this weekend before the game. Get an autographed photo of Dillon Johnson by showing that you follow Montlake Futures.
  • Bralen Trice has been playing well lately.
  • This Saturday’s game is a Salute to Service.
  • A plea from Courtney Morgan for UW fans on Saturday.
  • The stadium should be rocking since it is sold out.
  • UW has a very good record against Kyle Whittingham. They are one of only two teams which have a winning record (losing record by Utah) against him.
  • There has been lots of controversy around alleged sign-stealing by Michigan. One of the proposals to get rid of that is to use communication technology like helmet communication during games. The NCAA will be allowing communication technology during this year’s bowl games (except the playoff games) as long as both teams agree. This article from The Athletic (should be free) discusses this along with some of the issues. One option to helmet communication is other forms of wearable technology. In the article in mentions that one of the leading companies in this area is Go Rout which has worked with UW.

UW Athletics

  • Basketball double-header tomorrow.
  • In Volleyball, Kierstyn Baron is the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week for the third time.
