Price, Huskies get offense rolling vs. Utah
By Ted Miller
Washington quarterback Keith Price broke out against Utah, and the Huskies secured a sixth win and bowl eligibility for a third consecutive season with a 34-15 victory.
Price completed 24 of 33 passes for 277 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran for a score.
The Huskies defense held the Utes to just 188 total yards. Nearly all of that went to running back John White, who gained 142 yards on 22 carries. The Utes had been 11-0 when White rushed for more than 100 yards, but quarterback Travis Wilson was just 8-of-23 for 55 yards with an interception, so there was little passing threat.
Bishop Sankey rushed for 162 yards on 36 carries with two scores for the Huskies. He became the 10th 1,000-yard rusher in Washington history.
Washington, 5-1 at home this season, improved to 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the Pac-12. It visits Colorado next week. Utah, winless on the road this year, fell to 4-6 and 2-5. The Utes need to beat both Arizona and Colorado over the next two weeks to earn bowl eligibility for a 10th consecutive season.
