The Washington game captains for today were quarterback Carl Bonnell, defensive end Greyson Gunheim, defensive tackle Jordan Reffett and wide receiver Anthony Russo.

Senior tailback Louis Rankin finished the game with 224 yards on 21 carries, to give him 1,077 yards for the season. He became the 12th Husky in history to rush for 1,000 or more yards in a season and the first since Rashaan Shehee in 1997. Here are the 11 previous Husky 1,000-yard rushers (starting with the highest total): Corey Dillon (1,695 in 1996), Greg Lewis (1,407 in 1990), Napoleon Kaufman (1,390 in 1994), Kaufman (1,299 in 1993), Lewis (1,197 in 1989), Joe Steele (1,111 in 1978), Hugh McElhenny (1,107 in 1950), Kaufman (1,084 in 1992), Shehee (1,055 in 1997), Jacque Robinson (1,036 in 1984), and Ron Rowland (1,002 in 1976). All of those totals include bowl games.

With 1,077 yards, Rankin now ranks ninth in UW single-season history.

Rankin's 224 yards in today's game ranks eighth in UW single-game history.

It was the ninth 100-yard rushing game of Rankin's career (three each this season, in 2006 and in 2005). His nine career 100-yard games rank tied for eighth in UW history (Kaufman holds the record with 17). It was also his second 200-yard game, making him one of only three Huskies ever to record multiple 200-yard games. Kaufman had four and Dillon had two. There have been 17 200-yard rushing games in UW history, all in Husky wins.

Rankin also moved into No. 5 on the UW career kick return yards list. With 994 career kick return yards, Rankin moved past Kaufman and Roc Alexander in today's game.

UW senior Anthony Russo has caught a pass in 35 consecutive games, dating back to the 2004 Washington State game.

Linebacker E.J. Savannah notched his first career interception in the second quarter. It was the 11th interception of the season, by the 10th different UW players (Mesphin Forrester has two; nine other players have one each).

Washington's 28 points in the first half tied for the Huskies' most in the first half this season. They also scored 28 in the first half vs. Arizona.

Brandon Johnson, freshman tailback, smashed his career high for carries and rushing yards with 23 carries for 121 yards today. His previous highs were 5 and 20, both in the Syracuse game.

Before today, the last time the Huskies had two 100-yard rushers in a game was in last season's win over San Jose State when Rankin (145 yards) and Isaiah Stanback (102) did it.
