Washington notes after UW’s 59-7 victory over Colorado:

Bishop Sankey scored his 30th career rushing touchdowns in the first quarter to move into sole possession for third all-time in UW history. He trails only Joe Steele (32) and Napoleon Kaufman (34) on the all-time list. It also was his 13th rushing

TD this year to move him into a sixth-place single-season tie with Jake Locker (2009) and Hugh McElhenny (1951).

— Sankey entered the day ranked sixth all-time in UW history with 2,788 rushing yards. His 143 yards today moves him to 2,931 yards and allowed him to leap-frog Vince Weathersby (2,811) and Greg Lewis (2,903) all the way to fourth on the list. Next up: Joe Steele (3,168).

— Sankey surpassed 100 yards on the ground for the 14th time in his career, the fourth most all-time in UW history. He has rushed for over 100 yards seven times this season and in 11 of the last 14 games dating back to last season.

Keith Price went over 300 yards for the sixth time this year, eighth time overall in his career. He did not attempt a pass in the second half.

— Price has been especially good against Colorado during his career. In 2011, Price was 21 for 28 for 257 yards and 4 TDs. In 2012, he was 22 for 29 for 248 yards and 5 TDs. Today he was 22-of-29 for 312 yards, 2 passing TDs and 2 rushing TDs. Together, that’s 65 for 86 for 817 yards and 11 TD passes, 2 rushing TDs and 0 INTs.

— Price has 8,434 passing yards to move up to 23rd all-time in Pac-12 history. He started the day 27th on the list. He also has 72 touchdown passes in his career and moved into a tied for 10th all-time in Pac-12 history with Carson Palmer.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins grabbed the 18th touchdown of his career to take sole possession of No. 4 on the UW’s all-time receiving touchdown list. He now only trails Reggie Williams (22), Jermaine Kearse (29) and Mario Bailey (30).

Travis Coons improved to 9 of 9 on field goal attempts with a 27-yard on the Huskies first drive.

— Safety Kevin King became the first true freshman to start a game this season for the Huskies.

Sean Parker collected his first career sack, getting to Sefo Liufau for a 6-yard loss in the second quarter.

— Seferian-Jenkins equaled his season-high of 62 receiving yards by halftime.

Tre Watson’s 84-yard interception return for a TD is the ninth-longest in UW history and the longest since a 91-yarder by Jermaine Smith in 1997. It was the Huskies first defensive touchdown of the season and the first since Marcus Peters

scored on an interception vs. Portland State on Sept. 15, 2011.

Marcus Peters’ fumble return of 53 yards was the Huskies first fumble returned for a TD since Will Shamburger vs. San Diego State on Sept. 1, 2012.

— Saturday’s game was the first time since Nov. 9, 2002 against Oregon State that the Huskies’ defense has scored twice in the same game.

Sean Parker snagged his 4th interception this year and the 11th of his career. He is now tied for seventh all-time in UW history with his 11 picks.

— The Huskies scored 28 points in the second half without attempting a pass.

— Washington’s 59 points are the fifth most since 1945. The 52-point win is the ninth largest margin of victory in the modern era and the fifth largest against a conference opponent.

— Washington scored a touchdown on its opening third quarter drive for the eighth time in nine games this season. The only time they failed to do so was against Idaho State, when UW’s No. 2 offense started the second half.

— The Huskies added to their school record total of surpassing 500 total yards for fifth time this season and also fourth times over 600 total yards this year. The Huskies came into the season with only six games all-time of going over 600 yards.
