Two out of three ain’t bad

OK, so maybe it’s just San Jose State and it seemed a little sloppy at times.
But when you’re 3-19 the last two years, any win is a good one.
And look at it this way — considering the win over Arizona in the second-to-last game of a year ago, the Huskies have won two of their last three games.
Most interesting facet of the second half might have been that the Huskies spent much of it in their nickel defense, giving ample playing time to the likes of Chris Stevens and E.J. Savannah, the latter on the field a lot more than it seemed like he would be.
Savannah seemed more than comfortable out there and appears to have no limitations from the injury that held him out a year ago.
As I write this, the Huskies are going for it on fourth-and-five, having now twice decided not to kick field goals in the mid-40-range into the wind.
Stanback misses on the fourth down pass to Russo on this fourth down play and San Jose State still has a pulse.
Stanback has 95 yards rushing as I write this and could become the first Husky to top the 100-yard rushing mark since Marques Tuiasosopo. Isaiah’s career high is 96 last year against Arizona.
Come back here after the game for more analysis.
