Pettis and Ross Giving No. 4 Washington a Dynamic Duo at WR
SEATTLE (AP) — Jake Browning's performance through the first seven games rightfully has the Washington quarterback in the Heisman Trophy conversation.
Somewhat lost in what Browning is doing for the fourth-ranked Huskies are the players on the receiving end of those passes — most often the combo of John Ross and Dante Pettis — and the huge chunks of yards they're claiming after the catch.
Ross and Pettis will be called upon to have big games again when the Huskies (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12) travel to No. 17 Utah on Saturday for one of the most anticipated Pac-12 games of the season.
Last Saturday against Oregon State, Pettis and Ross became the first pair of Washington receivers with more than 100 yards each in the same game since 2002. Ross finished with 115 yards and Pettis had 112, becoming the first duo to accomplish the feat since Reggie Williams and Patrick Reddick in a game against California.
