Washington quarterback Cody Pickett moved up two more spots on the all-time Pac-10 passing yards list. With 234 today, the Husky senior has 7,956 in his career, good for 15th on the Pac-10's career list. Pickett passed Stanford's Jim Plunkett and Washington State's Jack Thompson today. He is just 24 yards behind California's Kyle Boller (7,980).

UW junior receiver Reggie Williams moved into 10th place on the Pac-10's career receiving yards list. With 72 yards today, Williams now as 2,766 career receiving yards. Today, he passed ASU's Aaron Cox, Cal's Bobby Shaw and Oregon's Tony Hartley. Williams also moved up to 13th on the Pac-10 career receptions list with 172.

While the Huskies have been out-scored 38-27 in the first half so far this season, they've outscored opponents 65-17 in the second half and have yet to allow a fourth-quarter point.

The last time a UW opponent passed for fewer than 100 yards was on Sept. 18, 1999, when Air Force threw for only 65 yards.

Rich Alexis ran for 116 yards on the day. His career high is 134 yards set vs. WSU in 2000. Since 1947, the Huskies are 156-35-3 when a UW back rushes for 100 or more yards.

The Huskies rushed for a season-high 231 yards and scored five rushing touchdowns. Kenny James' (8 att., 45 yards) long rush of 26 yards was an individual season-high for UW. Rich Alexis also had his longest rush of the season with a 25-yard carry. Going into today's game, the longest rush was 10-yard carry by Shelton Sampson.

UW junior fullback Zach Tuiasosopo scored the first touchdown of his career late in the third quarter.

Idaho's first quarter TD pass from from Michael Harrington to Zach Gerstner was the first passing touchdown the Huskies allowed this season. Idaho added another passing TD in the third quarter.

UW junior receiver Justin Robbins played during the game's opening series, marking his first game action since the third game of the 2001 season. The injury-plagued Robbins played in only one game in 2001 (Sept. 29, 2001 vs. Cal) and did not see any action last year while recovering from a variety of injuries. Robbins made his first reception since that '01 Cal game, a six-yard catch in the second quarter.

Terry Johnson's first-quarter fumble recovery for a touchdown marked the third season in a row that the Huskies' defensive tackle has scored a touchdown. He returned an interception for a TD vs. Texas in the 2001 Holiday Bowl, intercepted a pass in the endzone for a TD last year vs. San Jose State and recovered a Malfred Shaw fumble in the endzone for a score today.

Prior to Johnson's TD recovery today, the last time the Huskies scored on a fumble recovery (not a return) was when former linebacker Ben Mahdavi did it (on a punt play) Sept. 9, 1999, in a season-opening loss at Brigham Young.

Idaho followed UW's fumble recovery with one of their own. The muffed punt (muffed by Charles Frederick, recovered by Cedric Thompson) was only the fourth turnover of the season for the UW and marked the first time this season that the UW surrendered points after committing a turnover. Idaho scored on a three-yard TD pass on the ensuing drive. Idaho also scored a touchdown after recovering a Cody Pickett fumble in the third quarter.

Rich Alexis' two rushing touchdowns on the day increased his career total to 25, giving him sole possession of fifth place on the UW career rushing TDs list. The record (33) is held by Napoleon Kaufman (1991-94).

UW redshirt freshman tight end Ben Bandel made his first start today and also caught his first career pass, a seven-yarder good for a first down on 3-and-5 in the second quarter. Another redshirt freshman - quarterback/slotback Isaiah Stanback - also made his first career pass reception (12 yards late in the second quarter) after notching two carries last week. Junior tight end Jon Lyon, a JC transfer, also made the first catch of his career late in the second period.

UW junior receiver Reggie Williams moved into 10th place on the Pac-10's career receiving yards list. With 72 yards today, Williams now as 2,766 career receiving yards. Today, he passed ASU's Aaron Cox, Cal's Bobby Shaw and Oregon's Tony Hartley. Williams also moved up to 13th on the Pac-10 career receptions list with 172.
