Steve Sarkisian really had the Washington offense clicking in their 52-24 victory over Colorado Saturday.
In the first half alone, Washington scored on their first 6 possessions, 5 of them being touchdowns, as they built a 38-10 lead at the break. By the end of the game, 7 different Huskies had found the end zone.
First year starter Keith Price has gotten of to a fast start, throwing for 21 touchdowns on the season, which ranks just behind the national leader Robert Griffith III who has 22.
When Sarkisian was asked about the variety of the effectiveness of the play calling he responded,
"I'm not calling plays for a specific guy. We're calling the best plays for the moment and not concerned about who might be the guy and 'Can he make that play?' We have such belief in the guys on our football team right now."
That confidence will need to carry over as the 5-1 Huskies take on Stanford on Saturday.
