Washington Vs. Eastern Washington Final Score: Huskies Escape Eagles, 30-27

Huskies cornerback Desmond Trufant snatched the game away from the Eastern Washington Eagles. Literally. With 35 seconds left and the Eagles down 30-27, EWU quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell threw the ball to the right of the end zone hoping to put the game away with a touchdown, but it was intercepted cleanly by Trufant.

Other than the last play of the game, Mitchell was by far the best player on the football field the entire game. He set career highs with 39 completions and and 473 passing yards. He ended the game with three touchdowns, two interceptions and compiled a quarterback rating of 124.5. 

Until the last play of the game, Mitchell highlighted a noticeably weak Husky secondary. Eastern's spread offense simply could not be stopped the entire game. The Eagles only managed 31 yards rushing the entire game.

The Huskies wouldn't have won the game without their kicker, Erik Folk. Folk was three for three, converting from 40, 47 and 54 yards.

Moving forward, it looks like the Huskies will have to make some serious adjustments on the defensive end. Defensive coordinator Nick Holt will be busy preparing his defense and shoring up the weak secondary to face Hawaii this upcoming week. If the Huskies can't stop Eastern Washington, facing a potent Oregon offense is a bad nightmare.
