The Washington Huskies are looking to improve to 7-3 as they face the UCLA Bruins, who currently hold a 7-2 record and are still in contention for a Pac-12 South title.
The Washington Huskies improved to 6-3 with a 38-23 victory over Colorado, and they are set to face No. 18 UCLA.
The Huskies faced an upset bid from the Buffaloes as they trailed, 23-17, in the third quarter. However, they were able to pull away with 21 unanswered points.
The Huskies defense and special teams both came through as both units were responsible for a touchdown late in the game.
Quarterback Cyler Miles performed well as he threw for 206 yards and two touchdowns on 13-of-19 passing, but linebacker Shaq Thompson stole the show as he proved capable of playing multiple positions. He ran for 174 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.
UCLA achieved their second signature win of the season as they defeated Arizona, 17-7, in a minor upset. Quarterback Brett Hundley threw for 189 yards and a touchdown on 19-of-26 passing, and he ran for 131 yards on 24 carries.
Running back Paul Perkins also performed well as he ran for 78 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, and wide receiver Jordan Payton caught six passes for 119 yards and a touchdown.
The defense also shined as Arizona quarterback Anu Solomon’s accuracy was wildly awful, and the Wildcats only scored seven points.
The Bruins have a good enough defense to stop a mediocre Huskies offense, and their offense will provide a test for the Washington defense.
Prediction: UCLA 28, Washington 17
