After eight games, Washington averages 176.6 passing yards per game, which ranks last in the Pac-12.
Finding answers to explain the struggles aren’t easy and sophomore receiver John Ross III (above) admits the Huskies are still trying to find an identity in the passing game. The inconsistency at quarterback hasn’t helped. Washington has started three QBs including, Jeff Lindquist, Cyler Miles and Troy Williams.
Miles, who suffered a concussion two weeks ago at Oregon, will be behind center Saturday when Washington plays at Colorado. The forecast in Boulder, Colo. for the 10 a.m. PT kickoff is 73 degrees and partly sunny, which is much better than the monsoon-like conditions last Saturday at Husky Stadium when UW finished with just 139 passing yards during a 24-10 loss to No. 14 Arizona State.
After Tuesday’s practice, Ross talked about ASU, Colorado and UW’s passing game. He also touched on his 77-yard kickoff return, which was negated due to a holding penalty. It was the third long return that’s been disallowed because of a penalty.
