Strong Second Half Propels Huskies
Shaq Thompson rushed for 174 yards, Travis Feeney had a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown and Dante Pettis scored on an 87-yard punt return and Washington bulldozed the Colorado Buffaloes 38-23 Saturday.
The Huskies (6-3, 2-3 Pac-12) overcame a 20-17 halftime deficit to snap a two-game skid. The Buffaloes (2-7, 0-6) lost their fifth straight.
The Buffs started out fast for a change, but failed to finish strong even though they slowed Thompson after his big first half in which he ran for 151 yards and a TD on just 10 carries and added a 41-yard reception to set up another score.
