Sarkisian discusses relationship with QB Price

Washington Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian said that he feels QB Keith Price needs to trust him more after the team's 52-17 loss to the Arizona Wildcats this past weekend.


Huskies dominated by Wildcats, 52-17

After losing a close game to Stanford the previous week, the high scoring Arizona Wildcats were still looking for their first win in the Pac-12. They got the first victory at the expense of the Washington Huskies. 'Zona dominates Washington, 52-17.

The only time Washington held a lead was 10 minutes into the first quarter. After the field goal, Arizona took over for the rest of the game. 'Zona quarterback Matt Scott completed 14-of-22 passes for 256 yards and 4 touchdowns; this is in addition to his 8 carries for 43 yards and 1 touchdown. Running back Ka'Deem Carey carried the ball 29 times for 172 yards and 1 touchdown.

Washington quarterback Keith Price managed to match his opposing quarterback's yard total of 256. The only difference is that it took 29-of-52 tries to get to that point. Price threw 2 interceptions and was sacked 4 times. Of the 2 touchdowns scored by the Huskies, one went to running back Bishop Sankey and the other to tight-end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Washington is now on a 3 game losing streak, taking their record to 3-4 overall and 1-3 in conference.


Huskies Falling Further Behind 'Zona After 3rd Qtr

It's looking like a long night for the Washington Huskies. The team's only lead came at 10:00 in the first quarter with a field goal. From that point, it's been all Arizona and a little bit of Washington. The defense continues to have no answer for the offensive-heavy Arizona Wildcats. After three quarters of play, Washington falls further behind Arizona, 45-17.

At 13:06, Arizona quarterback Matt Scott completed a 17 yard pass to wideout Austin Hill for the touchdown. Just minutes later, Zona punt returner Richard Morrison ran a Travis Coons' punt back 63 yards and into the endzone. Washington tried, but failed to score in the quarter.

Quarterback Keith Price has completed a shade over 50% of his passes so far for a total of 191 yards. Washington has scored only 2 touchdowns to this point in the game. One by running back Bishop Sankey and the other by tight-end Austin Serferian-Jenkins. Sankey has run the ball 15 times for 59 yards. Seferian-Jenkins has 6 receptions for 86 yards.


Huskies trail Arizona 10-3 after 1st quarter

The Washington Huskies trail the Arizona Wildcats 10-3 after one quarter of play in Tucson on Saturday night.

Arizona completed a seven-play, 75-yard drive on its first possession to take a 7-3 lead when Matt Scott hit David Richards for a 27-yard touchdown pass. Washington's defense kept it a one-score game as the quarter closed, however. Scott completed passes of 20 and 43 yards to Dan Buckner to set the Wildcats up at the Washington seven-yard line. But the Huskies batted down a couple passes and held Arizona to a field goal.

Washington opened the game with a long, deliberate drive that saw quarterback Keith Price throw the ball ten times, completing six. The 14-play drive stalled when Price threw two incompletions at Arizona's 25-yard line, and Travis Coons put through a 43-yard field goal.

Price is 10-17 passing for 78 yards through one quarter, and Bishop Sankey leads all Huskies in rushing with 23 yards on six carries.


UW vs. Arizona: Game time, TV schedule and more

The Huskies will try to snap a two-game losing streak when they travel to Arizona to face the Wildcats on Saturday.


ESPN reflects on UW's season through six games

The Washington Huskies entered the 2012 season with high hopes. The team returned most of its starters from a year ago, including quarterback Keith Price who broke onto the scene as a sophomore. Despite the expectations in the preseason, UW has begun the year 3-3 after facing a tough schedule.

ESPN reflected on the first half of the Huskies season and weighed in on the team MVPs thus far. Here is a little bit of what Pac-12 blogger Ted Miller had to say.

The Huskies have been hit hard by injuries on the offensive line, and QB Keith Price has been under constant pressure. But Price hasn't been the same guy as he was last fall. Coach Steve Sarkisian has said he's been pressing, but it's still shocking that he is 10th in the Pac-12 passing efficiency. For the Huskies to turn things around, Price must regain his mojo.

The Huskies face a critical game at Arizona on Saturday. The Wildcats defense will be far more forgiving than LSU, Stanford, Oregon and USC. It would be a great time for Price to revert to form, which could foretell a season-half surge.

Miller named running back Bishop Sankey the offensive MVP for UW. The sophomore is averaging 4.7 yards per carry, has surpassed the 100 yard mark three times and has rushed for six touchdowns.

Desmond Trufant was named the Huskies defensive MVP. As Miller explained, Trufant has 18 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, a sack, an interception and has knocked away five passes through six games. He has been Washington's most reliable player this season and will need to have a big game against Arizona's high-flying pass attack.
