Grizzlies set to battle No. 7 Washington Huskies

Grizzlies set to battle No. 7 Washington Huskies”

Montana might be overmatched physically by the Huskies but was sharp while recording a 45-23 victory over Valparaiso in its opener as former Kentucky backup quarterback Reese Phillips passed for 381 yards and four touchdowns. All-America senior inside linebacker Azeem Victor will be back from a one-game suspension for violation of team rules to aid a defense that allowed 131 rushing yards and was kept on the field for more than 38 minutes.

Washington's home opener featured plenty of highlights, including left tackle Trey Adams gaining 9 yards on a designed lateral pass that he almost scored on, and Jomon Dotson's 68-yard interception return in the third quarter that was perhaps better than Pettis' return.

A pair of scores in the second quarter had the Huskies ahead 35-7 at the half. "We stopped them when we really needed to", Petersen said. Browning added a career-high 50 yards rushing.

While it's unlikely the unranked Griz will earn their first win against an FBS program since they topped Idaho 41-28 on September 27, 2003, coach Bob Stitt is looking for a strong effort out of his team. They went for it on fourth down again from UW's 24-yard line, but couldn't get the third and turned the ball over. In a game like this, you have your opportunities to do your things early. "We're just going to let our game do the talking". The senior finished 17 of 28 for 123 yards. Montana (1-1) made the unwise decision to punt to Pettis on the final play of the first quarter. His running back, Myles Gaskin, is an explosive runner who can take it to the house at anytime. In the home finale last season, Browning threw for 338 yards and two touchdowns against Arizona State but also threw two interceptions. So the opener is expected to be a celebration - even without a premier opponent - and a tuneup after Washington's sluggish 30-14 season-opening win over Rutgers. "We've got to start faster, we've got to tackle better, but I think it was a good start out of the gate".

Dante Pettis weaved his way 67 yards for his Pac-12 record-breaking seventh career punt return touchdown, and Jake Browning threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 7 Washington to a 63-7 win over Montana.

"That's something that our team can take away from this game", he said. The last game of the series, the Griz suffered a 58-7 loss in 1951.
