41-3 over the Portland State Vikings, pride of the FCS’ Big Sky Conference. The defense dominated in all facets, particularly in rushing, holding them to 34 yards. The offense was sluggish at times, but still effective enough to get us over 40 points for the sixth straight game, dating back to last year. Jake Browning threw 4 more touchdowns to give him 12 in three games. Myles Gaskin and the rushing attack as a whole had a nice breakout, with over 200 yards combined. And, the team as a whole forced 4 turnovers, including 3 fumbles.
As with the two games before this, there wasn’t a lot to learn from this game. Considering the Vikings come from a lower tier of college football, there’s REALLY not a lot to learn from this. Winning should have been a foregone conclusion, so I guess not struggling shows we were able to put in enough focus to not completely overlook this team.
Anyway, the non-conference creampuff slate is finished. Next week, we go to Arizona for something resembling a real test. Nothing about that team leads me to believe they’re in our league. Nevertheless, I’m sure I’ll be a bundle of nerves up until gametime. Let’s kick their shit in, Huskies!
