McIntosh is one of five returning starters in the UW secondary.
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Washington returns all five starters in its defensive secondary this season, a key reason why the Huskies have been pegged as the overwhelming favorite to win the Pac-12 Conference championship.
Senior safety JoJo McIntosh is one of those veterans in the secondary, and he says the expectations for the defensive backs are to be the No. 1 secondary in the country.
“There’s only one ‘DBU,'” he said at Pac-12 Football Media Day on Wednesday.
Just how good is this secondary?
