BACK, IN BLACK! Postgame Notes
Sept. 27, 2012
Washington beat a top-10 opponent for the first time since taking down No. 3 USC on Sept. 19, 2009. They had been 0-5 vs. top-10 teams since then prior to tonight.
Washington beat Stanford for the first time since a 27-9 victory in 2007. The Huskies are now 41-38-4 all-time vs. the Cardinal.
UW improved to 2-3 all-time against Stanford when they are ranked in the top-10. The only other time they beat a top-10 ranked Cardinal team was a 42-28 win in Seattle in 2001 when Stanford was 10th and the Huskies were 11th.
Stanford ran for 446 yards on the ground last year and only mustered 65 yards tonight.
Bishop Sankey passed the 100-yard rushing mark for the second-straight game.
Stanford came into the game allowing 124 yards rushing combined to their previous three opponents. Sankey alone had 144 yards vs. the Cardinal and is the first 100-yard rusher against Stanford since LaMichael James of Oregon in the Cardinals’ last regular-season loss on Nov. 12, 2011.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins continued his move up the Huskies top-10 list for career receptions by a tight end. He now has 63 and is 5th on the all-time list and trails John Brady (67). A complete list of all-time reception leaders by UW tight ends can be found on page 113 of the record book.
Kasen Williams set new career highs with 10 catches and 129 yards. His previous highs were six for 75 yards.
Thomas Tutogi went over 10 tackles for the second time this season. He also did it against LSU.
Senior Nate Fellner made his 2012 debut, appearing first on the kickoff unit.
Freshman Shane Brostek made his first career start on the offensive line.
Travis Coons made his debut as a punter and hit a 44-yarder in the first quarter. He also made a 43-yard field goal in the quarter. Coons is the first Husky to hit a field goal and punt in the same game since Jared Ballman vs. Oregon State on Oct. 18, 2008.
