What a difference a year makes in Seattle.

This time a year ago. Washington Was 1-2 in the FCS with a loss to Montana and Michigan In doing so, the Huskies scored 17 combined points. On Saturday, the Huskies He won and scored 39 points against a Michigan State team that was ranked No. 11 in the AP Poll. And the game wasn’t as close as the 39-28 final score. Washington had 503 total yards and averaged 9.9 yards per pass. With the win, the Huskies moved into the top 25 of this week’s edition to improve to 3-0. The athletics 131.

Washington’s 4-8 record last season under former head coach Jimmy Lake was surprising because the pace was so fast. This was a program that won 32 games under Chris Peterson from 2016 to 2018. Recruitment has gone relatively well, and is one of the best sourcing programs in the West. But the attack turned out to be anemic.

Enter Kalen DeBoer and Michael Pennix Jr DeBoer has won basically everywhere he’s been. He went 82-9 as a head coach, including a 67-3 stretch at NAIA Sioux Falls from 2005 to 2009. He turned around and helped. Indiana And Fresno State As offensive coordinator, he then returned to Fresno State and posted a 9-3 record in his second season as head coach.

When Pennix was healthy, he was electric as Indiana’s quarterback, but he’s dealt with a number of injuries. He met DeBoer in Seattle, and Washington football is exciting again. Through three games, he is completing 66 percent of his passes for 359.7 yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception.

Everyone wrote off the Pac-12 after Week 1, but we may need to reevaluate that. The biggest reason for this is Washington.

Here is the final version The athletics 131.

The only change in this group USCIt rose to number 8 after a. Fresno State won 45-17. The Trojans seem to be in the best possible situation under Lincoln Riley right now. The fault is electrical. The defense has shown holes (81st yards per game), but is fourth in the nation with 10 carries. A trip to Oregon State this week will be an interesting challenge.

Michigan is up 3-0 but has. He played three of the worst teams in the country.. A game against the field Maryland This week will be the first time we start reviewing the Wolverines.

The choices have come to the area. Put Georgia at number 1And he won the 1st week Oregon It looks better now that the Ducks have won BYU.

Penn StateS Auburn won 41-12 He quickly changed his view of what could happen to this team. Auburn It may not be a great team, but the Nittany Lions managed to rush for 245 yards with a good front. Oregon’s aforementioned 41-20 win at BYU suddenly makes the Pac-12 much better now to go with USC, Washington and UtahThe beater San Diego State 35-7.

Texas, Wake forest And Be a lady They also move up to 25. The Longhorns have eliminated Alabama He hung up USA Wake Forest was shut down in the second half Freedom And Ole Miss beat Georgia Tech 42-0.

The choice is Utah first Florida And Bayer He has Michigan State ahead of BYU, and the coaches’ pick ahead of Washington. why? I have no idea. In these stages, when two teams are close, the winner of the head gets the advantage, especially after three weeks of the season.

I have seen many comments about it MinnesotaLast week’s level. He’s moved up the rankings a lot because he’s played against one of the worst teams in the country and an FCS team. It’s the same reason with Michigan and Ole Miss that it’s negative and not positive. Sometimes you can skip if someone else has a more impressive win. Minnesota was No. 39 in my preseason rankings and still sits there. They beat Michigan State and maybe even within 25.

North Carolinawon Appalachian State It just kept getting better, and the Mountaineers’ win over Hail Mary, as well as Texas A&M’s win over Miami. Maryland won 34-27 SMU It was a solid performance.

Kansas And Syracuse! KU is in the top 35 after a 3-0 road start. West Virginia And Houston. Syracuse won 3-0 Louisville And Purdue. It’s not hard to see the 5-0 Orange heading into the NC State game. Tulane He makes his biggest jump from No. 110 to the top 50 this week to move to 3-0 after a win over Kansas State. Our LadyS A close escape from Cal Combined with the loss of Marshall Bowling green He throws both groups. ArizonaThe 31-28 win over North Dakota State was impressive as hell. Wild cats They are officially a great team.

Several teams come into this group with losses — Purdue, Texas Tech, Houston, UTSA and Auburn — but otherwise, there’s not much activity. Indiana narrowly escaped western Kentucky and Rutgers He barely escaped TempleBut both are 3-0. Wyomingwon 17-14 Air force The loss moved the Cowboys to 3-1 Illinois.

Vanderbilt’s comeback at Northern Illinois to move to 3-1 is a definite sign of progress for the program. Rice won 33-21 Louisiana It was one of the surprise results of the weekend. Eastern Michigan beat Arizona State, becoming the first MAC school to win a regular-season game against the Pac-12. Northwest Ireland went on to win. Nebraska with loss Duke and FCS Southern Illinois at home.

South Alabama won UCLA They slipped by a field goal as time expired, and Troy allowed upstate Hail Mary to beat them. Heavy losses. San Diego State is now 1-2 with two losses to Pac-12 teams. Very quickly, this does not resemble the ancient Aztecs.
