Huskies Nip In State Cousins 59-52


Washington and FCS powerhouse Eastern Washington put on a gem of the game Saturday in the Emerald City of Seattle.

The Pac-12 power Huskies surged to a 21-0 lead before hanging on for a 59-52 victory.

The main thorn for Washington was EWU quarterback Vernon Adams Jr., who put on a dazzling air show.

Adams threw for 475 yards and seven touchdowns on 31-of-46 passing. The Huskies were befuddled throughout as they failed to pick off an Adams attempt.

Easten Washington actually overcame the early deficit to take a 45-44 lead with less then three minutes left in the third quarter on a 22-yard pass from Adams to Cory Mitchell.

The Huskies rallied, however, as Cyler Miles scored on touchdown runs of 5 and 3 yards to give the Huskies a 59-45 lead.

Adams completed his valian day with an 11-yard scoring strike to Zach Wimberly with 3:14 left.

Eastern was the top-ranked team in the FCS entering the game.

The schools put up more than 1,100 yards of total offense. Washington rolled up 356 yards on the ground, led by Lavon Coleman (17 carries, 118 yards).
