Washington 52 [sic], Colorado 24

The numbers on the scoreboard turned at such a dizzying pace, Washington defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu could hardly keep up. "It was like a video game," said the Washington senior. "It was crazy."
The Huskies are in a new place now. "Foreign territory," coach Steve Sarkisian calls it.
Good times on Montlake as the Huskies put up more than 50 points for the first time since 2001. I can't remember the last time Washington dismantled someone like this.

The Seattle Times game summary article is here and there is also a remarkably positive column by the normally-a-bit-negative Jerry Brewer.

Next week, of course, the level of difficulty increases a bit when the Huskies travel to Palo Alto to play Leland's College. WSU, whose game, unusually, was available for me to watch yesterday, played them about even for the first half. So they are beatable. But can the Huskies beat them?  I will have to say, too, that I was wrong about the Cardinal. I thought they would fall apart, or at least sink from great to good, when coach Jim Harbaugh left for the pros, but they have not.
