Player of the game
Washington quarterback Keith Price might have missed a few throws early on, but like the entire offense, he rebounded in the second half and finished with a career-high five touchdown passes to tie a school record.
Play of the game
Washington junior receiver Keith Smith likely will find his way onto highlight reels for years to come with his play in the third quarter, when he leapt out of bounds to grab the ball and then throw it back onto the field after a punt had bounced off the shoulder of a Colorado player. UW’s Will Shamburger recovered at the Husky 35 to set up a TD.
