Hau’oli Kikaha leads the nation this season with 12.5 sacks, and he needs just one more to break the Huskies’ career mark in that category. Here’s a fun story from Percy Allen breaking down the art of the sack with Kikaha.

“There’s a million and one things that can happen in those 3-5 seconds,” Kikaha said. “It’s just controlled chaos. Bodies colliding and people running around. It’s like nothing else in life.

“We could be here all day talking about everything that goes into pass rushing.”
