Washington's defense gave up a single-game school record of 777 yards against the Baylor Bears in Thursday's loss at the Alamo Bowl.

In response to a question about the team's defensive scheme and personnel in Thursday's post-game press conference, Huskies Head Coach Steve Sarkisian said:

As a program collectively, I'm going to evaluate everything. I am concerned about some schemes for us offensively, as well, and on special teams and on defense. We obviously need to improve, and we'll look at every facet of it to see if we can improve with what we have or if we've got to go in another direction. (Via: Seattle Times)
