It’s every bit the defensive struggle the score indicates.
For a while, the battle of field position favored UW significantly, as a Sean Douglas punt was downed at the Arizona 1, and the Huskies came very close to forcing safeties on a couple of runs. But Arizona finally worked its way out of the hole, and there’s little to separate the teams so far.
Washington has 70 total yards, Arizona 63. It took UW more than 13 minutes before the first completion, and the running game isn’t quite there yet either.
