Washington 36, San Diego State 3
September 13
Husky Stadium

Washington used an accurate passing attack and solid defense to defeat the visiting San Diego State Aztecs in its home opener, giving Washington its 12th straight home opening win.

After fumbling on its first possession, Washington settled in with a 64-yard drive capped by a 12-yard scoring toss from Brock Huard to Jerome Pathon. Later in the second quarter, Huard found Fred Coleman for a 44-yard score to give the Huskies a 17-3 lead at halftime.

It was all Washington in the second half as Huard found Pathon again, this time for a 53-yard touchdown mid-way through the third quarter. Washington final touchdown was a 12-yard strike to Reggie Davis late in the final period.

Washington's defense picked up where it left off the week before, holding San Diego State's offense to -7 yards rushing and less than 200 total yards. The defense also posted its first points of the season in the fourth quarter when senior linebacker Jerry Jensen, after recording his first career interception in the second quarter, found SDSU running back Marty Graham in his own endzone for the safety. Lester Towns led Washington's defensive charge, recording 10 tackles. Chris Campbell also turned in a strong performance recording 2.5 tackles for loss. The Huskies had four sacks on their way to recording the largest margin of victory in a home opener since a 56-3 win over Kansas State in 1991.

Brock Huard set personal bests with 313 yards and four touchdowns. Senior Jerome Pathon also notched career bests with eight receptions for 182 yards, including a pair of scores. Pathon became the first UW player to record back-to-back 100-yard receiving games since Mario Bailey in 1991.
