Huskies lose Colin Tanigawa to knee injury

During his weekly radio show on Monday, Washington Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed that sophomore offensive lineman Colin Tanigawa would miss the rest of the 2012 season following a knee injury believed to be suffered in the game against LSU.

When asked about the team's injuries, he reiterated the news regarding Tanigawa and went on to state that linebackers Nate Fellner and Jamaal Kearse should be ready to go for the game against the Stanford Cardinal. Kevin Smith, a starting wide receiver should also return to action at The Link on Saturday.

In Tanigawa's absence, the offensive line will be even more inexperienced for the remainder of the season. One of the other starting lineman, Colin Porter, was forced to walk away from the game due to chronic shoulder ailments. Dexter Charles impressed Sarkisian in the win against Portland, and will have to step up moving forward.

"[Charles] is a nasty guy and plays it physically the way you'd like to see it played," said Sarkisian.

Portland State Vs. Washington 2012: Rebound Victory Over Vikings Pleases UW Dawg Pound

Against a clearly inferior Portland State Vikings team, the Washington Huskies exploded for 52 points, which served as much more than a release for Huskies faithful after a tough loss to LSU.

For the guys over at UW Dawg Pound, a few key players stood out above the rest in the blowout 52-13 victory.

While the score was indicative of the talent differential and the domination by the Huskies, there were two players that stood above the rest in pure physical domination: Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Despite the strong showing, UW Dawg Pound found a few things to be worried about, including a lack of pure domination one might expect in a FCS-FBS matchup. But the showing was strong.

The physical domination was not where I was looking for it however, the running game worked because of [running back] Bishop Sankey's speed, and the defenders being slower to react,not the offensive line pushing the opposing defense back onto their heels. ... I was almost disapointed by the non-physical domination by the offensive line.

As far as defense went, UW Dawg Pound was more than pleased with what they saw.

The defensive front looked solid overall, not allowing the rush game that involved a bulldozer of a quarterback to get major traction. The secondary looked solid aside from Marcus Peters falling for a double move.
