SEATTLE (AP) — Jake Browning became the fifth Washington quarterback in the last 20 seasons to pass for four touchdowns in a game, added a fifth touchdown on a 12-yard run, and led the Huskies to a 49-3 rout of Arizona on Saturday night.
After sitting out last week against Stanford with a shoulder injury, Browning was nearly flawless in leading the Huskies to their most lopsided conference victory since a 59-7 win over Colorado in 2013.
Browning threw three first-half touchdowns as the Huskies (4-4, 2-3 Pac-12) built a 21-3 lead and added a 31-yard TD strike to Dante Pettis on the opening possession of the second half. Browning capped his night with his first career touchdown rushing to give the Huskies a 35-3 lead.
Browning finished 16 of 24 passing for 263 yards. He joined Jake Locker, Keith Price, Brock Huard and Cody Pickett as the only Washington QBs with at least four touchdown passes in a game since 1996.
