Utah vs. Washington 2012: Keith Price leads solid offensive effort

The Huskies got their third-straight win on Saturday with a 34-15 victory over the Utah Utes, and it may have been Washington's most complete performance against an FBS opponent this year. The defense has been solid for UW throughout the season, but the offense finally came to play against Utah.

Washington blog UW Dawg Pound was impressed with the play of quarterback Keith Price, who has struggled to meet expectations. He looked much closer to his 2011 form this week:

The biggest thing to take from the game was the play of Keith Price. He went back to playing what Steve Sarkisian has called "Keith Price football" and the offense around him looked as good as it's been against any FBS opponent. He (for the most part) hit his open guys, made good decisions and made some plays with his legs.

Price was accurate, completing 24 of 33 for 277 yards and two touchdowns. He posted his best passer rating since Portland State. Price set season highs in yardage and completion percentage, completed his longest pass of the year, and avoiding throwing an interception for the first time since that Portland State game.

Washington is now 6-4 with games against Colorado and Washington State left on the schedule. The win makes the team bowl eligible for the third-straight year under Steve Sarkisian and it appears the Huskies are in line to close the season strong.
