SEATTLE (AP) - Steve Sarkisian gained notoriety for his fancy, high-scoring units when he was an offensive coordinator. The Washington coach is OK with ugly victories, too.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the questions were about whether Sarkisian had lost his touch with the Huskies riding a three-game losing streak and getting blown out in two of the losses.
Those concerns have subsided after wins over Oregon State and Friday's sometimes unappealing 21-13 victory over California that improved the Huskies to 5-4 and put them on the cusp of securing a third straight bowl appearance.
Washington has three more chances at obtaining bowl eligibility beginning this week with its home finale against Utah. It closes the season at woeful Colorado before facing rival Washington State in the Apple Cup.
