SEATTLE, Wash. -- The Huskies found the deep threat they have been looking for so far this year in wideout D'Andre Goodwin. The junior receiver from Pacoima, Calif. caught receptions for 24, 46 and 48 yards on his way to his first 100-yard game. Goodwin had five receptions for 136 yards and acted as a catalyst for two of the Huskies' three scoring drives.
"It was just about running excellent routs that were taught by coach (Tim) Lappano and Ronnie (Fouch) was hitting me deep," Goodwin said. "It was part of the game plan because of how their safeties play. It was a game-plan thing where they were giving us the deep ball."
Freeman Starts At Running Back
In just his first collegiate start, freshman halfback Terrance Dailey recorded UW's first 100-yard rushing game of the season. Dailey gained 106 yards on 16 carries and scored his first touchdown.
"When I got in the end zone, I couldn't believe it," Dailey said of his 59-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. "When I was on the sideline, coach just told me to hit the hole harder because I was juking too much in the hole."
The Huskies have now had four different starters at running back -- all of them freshmen. Besides Dailey, redshirt-freshman Willie Griffin and true freshmen Chris Polk and David Freeman have made starts.
Fouch Make First Start At Husky Stadium
Freshman quarterback Ronnie Fouch made his first start in Husky Stadium with rave reviews, as he was able to throw for a season-high 276 yards and keep UW's offense moving. But Fouch was not as impressed with his homecoming game start.
"It's frustrating because we could move the ball but, when we got in the red zone, we just couldn't get it in," Fouch said. "In the beginning of the game, when we weren't down by much, we just said that if we keep doing what we're doing, we'll get in there.
"The receivers made some great plays and we're getting more confident in the passing game, but we've just got to be able to put it all together."
