The 12th-ranked University of Washington football team got back on track Saturday, beating the UCLA Bruins 44-23 at Husky Stadium. Washington had two weeks to stew upon its first loss of the season at Arizona State on Oct. 14, as the Huskies had a bye last week. Washington got back to basics against the Bruins as 58 of its 70 offensive plays were runs. The Huskies finished with 333 yards rushing on their 58 carries, with Lynnwood native Myles Gaskin going for 169 yards on 27 carries with one touchdown, and Lavon Coleman adding 94 yards on 14 carries and three scores.
Here’s postgame reaction from Gaskin, Coleman and Washington coach Chris Petersen:
