Dawgs bludgeon Bengals

Accumulating 680 yards of total offense, the Washington Huskies overwhelmed the Idaho State Bengals, 56-0, at Husky Stadium in front of 67,093 fans -- the bludgeoning played under sunny skies.

Flagged 12 times in their 34-24 win over Illinois last week, the Huskies were whistled 16 times against Idaho State, a glaring set of miscues that must be corrected before the all-important Pac-12 opener against Arizona next week.

“Now, the final piece is we’ve got to clean up these penalties. And we’ll get that done,” Coach Steve Sarkisian was quoted as saying. “We’ve fixed a lot of things in this program over the last five years. And we’ll fix the penalties, believe me."

The offensive line was flagged 10 times for 60 yards, committing 7 false-start penalties and 4 penalties for holding.

The UW defense allowed the Bengals (FCS, Big Sky Conference) just 164 yards of total offense and sacked the quarterback seven times.

Washington star running back Bishop Sankey left the game in the first quarter with a bruised shoulder; he is expected to play next week.

The Dawgs' performance had to it a certain quality of mercy, as Sark called off the most rabid of his Dawgs in the second half.

Every eligible player played, the offense rushing for 370 yards behind ten different ball carriers. Deontea Cooper scored his first career touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. Cooper, out of the Inland Empire (notably Perris), has come back from three knee operations in as many years.

Washington QB Cyler Miles (6-4, 213) led all runners with 89 yards on 4 rushes. Sankey gained 77 yards on 4 carries, scoring one TD.

UW freshman kicker Cameron Van Winkle posted 5 touchbacks out of 9 kickoffs. He averaged 61.1 yards per kickoff, the 9 kickoffs netting 42.8 yards each.

“I’ve been coaching a long time,” Idaho State’s coach Mike Kramer was quoted as saying, “but the way Coach Sarkisian and staff treated us knowing that we were wounded was one of the most outstanding examples of sportsmanship and care of another team that I have ever seen.”

The QB efficiency ratings on the game follow:

QB School PA C YDS I TD Eff. Rate
Keith Price UW 21 16 213 0 3 208.53
Cyler Miles UW 7 5 97 0 1 234.97
Justin Arias IDST 39 16 140 2 0 66.05
C.J. Reyes IDST 1 1 2 0 0 116.8

The Huskies dominated the offensive line of scrimmage, 505.14 to 82.32, i.e.,

OLE = PASS-EFFICIENCY-OFFENSE PLUS (YARDS-PER-CARRY MULTIPLIED BY A NORMALIZING-NUMBER) SUBTRACTED BY OFFENSIVE-LINE-PENALTY-YARDS

UW Oline efficiency = 215.14 + 7.0 * 50 - 60 = 505.14 (*)

IDST Oline efficiency = 67.32 + .8 * 50 - 25 = 82.32

(*) The normalizing number 50 was arbitrarily chosen.
