Washington Game Notes
Tonight's game captains for the Huskies were junior safety Victor Aiyewa and freshman linebacker Tim Tucker. He joined season captains Donald Butler, Jake Locker, Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and Ryan Tolar.
Washington scored a defensive touchdown for the third straight game. Two weeks ago at Stanford, Justin Glenn ran in a fumble (backwards pass) for a score. At Notre Dame, Desmond Trufant did the same thing and tonight, Mason Foster returned an interception 37 yards for what proved the winning score.
Arizona scored a touchdown following the Huskies' first-quarter turnover (a Robert Golden interception of a Jake Locker pass), marking just the second time all year that a UW opponent converted a turnover into a TD. The only other was in the LSU game, when a Locker interception was returned for a score.
Jake Locker's 56-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the longest run of his career, scoring or not. His previous long was a 47-yard run vs. Oregon on Oct. 20, 2007.
UW receiver Devin Aguilar's five-yard TD reception was the first touchdown catch of Aguilar's career. Of course, Aguilar caught his second later in the game.
Freshman Nathan Fellner started at one safety spot for the Huskies tonight. It was the first start of Fellner's career and he became the fourth different true freshman to start a game for the UW this year, along with wide receiver James Johnson, cornerback Desmond Trufant and defensive end Talia Crichton.
Walkon freshman Cole Sager had his first career kickoff return in the fourth quarter.
Freshman tailback Demitrius Bronson had his first career rushes tonight.
Tonight's "Lucky Dawg," who accompanied the Husky captains to midfield for the coin toss, was Kendal Bishop, from Castle Rock, Wash.
