Washington Huskies Offense: 

After looking a bit shaky on offense against Oregon State, the Washington Huskies followed that game up with an amazing offensive performance against Oregon. Michael Penix Jr. was making the right read almost all game, as he did a great job throwing the ball to the most open receiver throughout the game. Penix had 408 yards for 2 touchdowns, and he completed 26 out of his 35 passing attempts. During the late 3rd quarter and the 4th quarter, Penix’s deep ball was on fire, as he perfectly placed two deep throws that both resulted in over 60 yard touchdowns. The Washington receivers were doing a great job getting open, as Jalen Mcmillan had 8 receptions for 122 yards, Ja’Lynn Polk had 3 receptions for 95 yards, including a 76 yard touchdown, Taj Davis had one receptions for 62, that resulted in a touchdown, Rome Odunze had 6 receptions for 56 yards, and Cameron Davis had 5 receptions for 31 yards. Even though Michael Penix Jr. has great rushing ability for a quarterback, he did not need to scramble a lot, as the Washington offensive line did a great job protecting Penix from being pressured. The run game was reliable for the Huskies, whenever they needed to run the ball instead of passing the ball. Wayne Taulapapa had 10 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown, Cameron Davis had 10 carries for 24 yards and a touchdown, and Michael Penix Jr. had 2 carries for 20 yards.
