Washington coach Chris Petersen reacts to the Huskies’ 30-27 loss to Oregon in overtime on Saturday afternoon:

(on missed field goal at end of regulation) “I feel bad for Peyton. That’s a lot of pressure for anyone, let alone a young guy. I wish they didn’t have that many timeouts. But Peyton’s a hard-working guy and he’s made a lot of field goals for us in his short career, and he will be back and he will be better.”

(last drive in regulation) “We thought we might get one more play, and we didn’t quite have the play that we liked. We definitely were within Peyton’s range and he had the wind at his back. So we thought we’d win it right there.”

(running back depth) “We feel good about our running back depth. Those two kids can run hard and make plays and I’m actually glad they got a chance to do something in a meaningful game.”

(on status of Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed) “They’re banged up. That’s football here in Game 7.”

(on physical nature of the game) “We knew it would be a physical game and we knew our guys would give it everything they had. That’s just kind of how it is when you’ve got two good teams squaring off.”

(on bouncing back) “We’ve got a tough road here. Everyone in the North’s pretty darn good. These guys will reload. This will fuel our fire and we’ll practice harder and analyze our mistakes and analyze the good things we did and build on those and come out next Saturday and swing hard.”

(on Jake Browning’s performance in the second half) “I thought he played well. That kid’s a tough kid. He’s not going to back down ever. He threw some tough, pin-point balls in there and he stood up in the second half.

(on Jaylen Johnson’s targeting call) “It’s a tough one. He’s coming off the edge and the guy turns right back into him. It is what it is and those are the rules.”
