Four more true freshmen made their first career starts today for the Huskies: tailback David Freeman, safety Johri Fogerson and wide receivers Devin Aguilar and Jermaine Kearse, who were in as the Huskies started in a four-receiver set. Defensive tackle Senio Kelemete, tailback Chris Polk and tight end Kavario Middleton, also all true freshmen, have also started for the UW this season for a total of seven different true freshman starters on the year.
Fogerson also became the 10th true freshman to play for the Huskies this season as he was not only making his first start, but also his first appearance. Fogerson was switched from tailback to safety on Tues., Sept. 2, after the Huskies' first game.
Fogerson led the Huskies in tackles with nine, sharing the lead with Mason Foster.
Redshirt freshman linebacker Cort Dennison also made his first UW appearance today, on special teams, while RS-freshman defensive tackle Nick Wood saw his first Husky action on the d-line in a goalline situation in the second quarter.
Lastly on that note, RS-freshman tailback Brandon Yakaboski saw his first career game action and caught a 38-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.
Washington had committed only one turnover through its first two games (at Oregon and vs. BYU), but turned the ball over three times today, with three lost fumbles in the first half. The Sooners converted all three of the Huskies' fumbles into touchdowns.
The Huskies' 15-play, 83-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter, the one that resulted in the 15-yard run from Jake Locker, was the UW's longest of the season in terms of both yards (83) and time of possession (seven minutes, 56 seconds).
Sophomore wideout D'Andre Goodwin led the Huskies in receptions for the third time in three games this year, finishing the game with nine for 82 yards.
Locker, who ran for 44 yards on 12 carries, was once again the Huskies' leading rusher in the game, as he has been in all three game so far this year.
Both Yakaboski and walkon wide receiver Tony Chidiac had their first career reception tonight. Yakaboski also notched his first career carry.
