SEATTLE -- Senior defensive end Darrion Jones, who's nursing a bruised knee, returned for Washington's second defensive series, replacing true freshman Talia Crichton.

It didn't help. At first.

The Trojans gashed the Huskies for a pair of long runs -- 25 yards from Joe McKnight and 27 yards from Stafon Johnson. But the defense stiffened and forced the Trojans to settle for a field goal.

Still, the Trojans have 111 yards rushing with 4:36 left in the first. That's a problem.

And if the Huskies completely gang up on the run, that should make things wide open for Damian Williams, who already made Aaron Corp look good on a couple of short tosses.
