Huskies better, but….

The Huskies are up 21-9 at halftime, not as much of a lead as it could be, but better than it looked like it would be.
The Huskies are dominating physically, which has to be a comforting sign for Husky fans. But they still seem a little sloppy, witness three turnovers and one time out when they didn’t have the right personnel on the field for a punt team. Take out the turnovers, and this would probably be a shutout right now.
A few other halftime observations:
The Huskies are definitely going with the spread option offense a lot more than in the past. They were in the spread for six of 16 plays in the first quarter.
UW’s 21 points is its most in a first half since the 2004 season.
Two true freshmen have played — Donald Butler and Paul Homer. Both have been on special teams and Homer was in for at least a play at fullback.
No injuries so far, though center Juan Garcia left the field limping after Louis Rankin’s long touchdown run. But he returned for the next series and the offensive line has been intact for every play so far.
The 134 yards rushing at halftime is more than all but four games from last season.
