After gorging on weak opponents for three weeks, No. 7 Washington gets its first real test when it travels to Colorado for Saturday's rematch of the Pac-12 title game from last season. It's the second straight year in which the nonconference schedule for Washington (3-0) has left the Huskies looking good and proving little. Yes, they are very talented and probably worthy of being the overwhelming favorites in the Pac-12 North as the conference season beings for them this week. But the quizzes Washington has faced so far against...

Pettis' 4 total TDs leads No. 6 Huskies past Fresno St 48-16

SEATTLE (AP) — Dante Pettis had four touchdowns including an NCAA record-tying eighth punt return touchdowns of his career, and No. 6 Washington finished off the undercard of its schedule with a 48-16 rout of Fresno State on Saturday night. Pettis had touchdown receptions of 4 and 7 yards in the first half, and a 73-yard TD pass from Jake Browning on the second play of the second half to give Washington (3-0) a 48-7 lead. But it was his 77-yard punt return late in the first quarter that left Husky Stadium buzzing and put Pettis' name into another record book.

Washington's Pettis on verge of NCAA punt return record

SEATTLE (AP) — Maybe it's time for Washington's opponents to consider avoiding Dante Pettis. Rutgers made the mistake of kicking to him in the season opener. Montana did the same a week later. Both times, the star wide receiver and dynamic punt returner for No. 6 Washington found his way into the end zone. "Coming into this year I didn't think I was going to get that many return opportunities," Pettis said. "Then after last game I was like 'I'm probably not going to get anymore.' Now after this game I'll probably be like, 'I'm not going to get anymore.' But people keep surprising me and...
