SEATTLE (AP) - Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams knew since last spring the Huskies were intent on leaving behind the idea of playing to shorten the game and were about to embark on football at a blistering pace.
Even he was surprised just how fast the Huskies played when they finally got on the field.
Washington likely caught the rest of college football by surprise with their track meet performance in Saturday night's 38-6 thumping of No. 19 Boise State. The Huskies never hid their intent on speeding up their game going into a season of heightened expectations.
Washington ran 85 offensive plays - averaging one snap every 21 seconds - and even slowed its pace slightly in the fourth quarter as the game got out of hand. It was the most plays run by the Huskies since 2007, but more impressive was the efficiency. The Huskies' 592 total yards was tied for 10th most in school history. They averaged 7 yards per play after averaging nearly a yard less per game a season ago.
