SEATTLE (AP) Washington stayed quiet. Stanford was just the next opponent, the Huskies said, and there was no extra meaning or motivation.
Then the celebration happened, complete with purple-clad fans rushing the field to celebrate Washington's 44-6 rout Friday night.
After months of hype surrounding a possible breakout performance for Washington (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12), the 10th-ranked Huskies showed they were ready for their return to the national stage.
