It was, in the words of Washington coach Steve Sarkisian, the first chance for redshirt freshman quarterback Cyler Miles to play “real football.”
So how did Miles assess his “real” play from the second half UW’s 41-31 loss at No. 13 UCLA?
“Some good things (and) definitely some things I can learn from moving on,” Miles said. “But the most (important) thing I took from it was just knowing you have to check it down and play smart.”
In reviewing film, Miles said there were two instances against UCLA in which he should have tucked the ball and run. That concurs with what Sarkisian said earlier in the week in wanting to see Miles use his legs more.
“That just come with learning,” Miles said.
Miles has been taking all the reps with the No. 1 offense this week while senior Keith Price rehabs his injured right shoulder.
“I believe in him,” senior receiver Kevin Smith said of Miles. “He’s great. He’s real smart. He knows the offense. He knows what he’s doing. … I feel like he’s going to be ready if that’s the call.”
