 Idaho State (2-0) at No. 17 Washington (2-0), 3 p.m. (Pac-12 Network)
Line: No line.
Series Record: First meeting.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Washington gets a chance to refine its no-huddle offense and get playing time for some reserves before starting Pac-12 play with a brutal stretch against Arizona, at Stanford, vs. Oregon and at Arizona State. For Idaho State, it's one of two paydays this season with the Bengals also facing BYU in November.
KEY MATCHUP
Idaho State passing game vs. Washington DBs: One thing is clear from the Bengals first two games is that they aren't afraid to put the ball in the air. QB Justin Arias has thrown from more than 400 yards in each game and Idaho State leads the FCS in yards passing after two weeks. It'll be a good challenge for Washington's secondary after the limiting both Boise State and Illinois to less than 200 yards passing.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
IDAHO STATE: P/PR/QB C.J. Reyes. There might not be another program that has their punter also serving as their punt returner and backup quarterback. But that's the case for the Bengals and Reyes. He's averaging 39.7 yards per punt, but has returned just one punt for 4 yards. Reyes has not thrown a pass yet this season.
WASHINGTON: RB Bishop Sankey. The quiet starting running back for the Huskies currently leads the country averaging 184.5 yards per game rushing. If everything goes right, Sankey won't be on the field that long against the Bengals, but should get a chance to add to those impressive early numbers,
