By the lofty standards he has set, Jake Browning‘s performance in Saturday’s 41-17 rout of Oregon State was, well, it was just OK.

It was still impressive enough that the sophomore quarterback has risen to No. 2 on the Heisman Trophy watch lists for both Sports Illustrated and ESPN.

Browning completed 14-of-28 passes for 291 yards and three touchdown, and he ran for another score for the No. 4 Huskies against Oregon State. He’s now in third place on UW’s single-season list with 26 touchdown passes, just seven shy of Keith Price‘s record of 33 from 2011.

Browning also ranks fifth all-time in school history with 42 career TD passes. Price also holds that record, with 75.

On the season, Browning has completed 118-of-172 passes (68.6 percent)  for 1,709 yards, 26 TDs, two interceptions and four rushing TDs. His passer rating of 199.6 puts him on track to break Russell Wilson’s single-season NCAA record.
