In a game from NCAAF Week 3, we will see Washington at Utah.
The Washington Huskies improved to 1-1 after they defeated the FCS North Dakota Fighting Hawks by 45-3 last Saturday. They outgained their opponents by a 632-262 margin. The Fighting Hawks had trouble moving the chains on 3rd down while the Huskies’ offense took care of business. QB Jake Browning completed 23 of 37 of his passes for 313 yards which was good for 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Offensively, after their two games against Auburn and North Dakota, Washington are averaging 30.5 ppg on 515.0 total yards per game. Defensively, they are allowing just 12 points per game.
Utah improved to 2-0 after beating the Northern Illinois Huskies by 17-6. Their defense is crucial so far as they have allowed just 8 points per game on 143 total yards. QB Tyler Huntley completes 63% of his passes while averaging 282.5 yards per game. Zach Moss is the right hand of the QB, rushing for 108 yards per game so far for 2 TDs.
Utah is always a tough a place to visit and given the fact that their defense is shutting down opponents at the moment, the Huskies need to be extra prepared. After their opening season loss to Auburn, Washington knows they need to run the table with impressive victories to have a chance to be in the playoffs this season and as they are the more talented team on offense and defense, I think the Huskies will do enough in this one to cover the spread.
