The Huskies' first defensive play of the game saw the UW in a nickel defense, giving linebacker Chris Stevens and cornerback Vonzell McDowell Jr. their first starts of the season.
Nate Williams' second-quarter interception was the first pick by a Husky defender since Mason Foster intercepted a Max Hall pass vs. Brigham Young on Sept. 6. It was also the first career interception for Williams, a true sophomore.
Williams' interception was also the Huskies' first takeaway in three games. The Dawgs did not force any turnovers in their last two games: vs. Oregon State or at Arizona.
Washington entered tonight's game with just three sacks on the season (all from Daniel Te'o-Nesheim). However, the Huskies recorded two more tonight -- one each from freshman DE Everrette Thompson and junior LB Donald Butler.
UW receiver D'Andre Goodwin, who had seven catches for 47 yards and one touchdown tonight, led the Huskies in receptions once again. He's been the team's receptions leader in every game this season other than the Arizona game, when he only played one play due to injury.
Goodwin was also the only receiver to make more than one catch for the Dawgs.
