Last Week

More from Washington Huskies Football

Colorado lost their first game of the season last week at USC 31-20. The defeat dropped them into a tie for first place in the PAC-12 South. Southern Cal scored 21 points in the second quarter which was enough to win. Buffs receiver Leviska Shenault Jr. had another huge day, catching nine passes for 72 yards, and picking up another 46 on two runs and a TD.

The Huskies lost a heartbreaker in overtime at Oregon 30-27. Neither team could pull away. The score was tied at the end of each quarter. UW had the chance to kick a game-winning field, but kicker Peyton Henry missed from 37 yards out. On the previous possession, the Huskies failed to convert a fourth and one from the Oregon 26. UO eventually won the game in overtime when running back C.J. Verdell scored on a six-yard run in the extra period.

This Week

I’ve written it several times this week, but I’ll do it again, Colorado has the unenviable task of facing a very fired up Washington Huskies team. The Buffs five wins to start the season were a bit misleading because they didn’t play anyone very good. USC is a pretty good team, but Colorado takes a huge step up in class this week.

Next. Our football picks for October 20-22. dark

Even with two losses, the Huskies are very much in the hunt for both a PAC-12 title and an end of season top-10 finish. Gaskin and Ahmed have been updated to probable for the game. The pair of halfbacks is going to run all over the Colorado defense. Also, linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven, who had 19 tackles against Oregon, will make Buffalo quarterback Steven Montez miserable. Washington wins and covers.
