SEATTLE (AP) If there's anything the Washington Huskies have proven through the season's first three games, it's that they have the ability to make big plays.
John Ross is the prime example. The speedster wide receiver already has three touchdown receptions longer than 55 yards. Ross has had the ball in his hands 17 times this season and gained 465 all-purpose yards (27.4 yards per touch). That includes a 75-yard touchdown reception last Saturday in the Huskies' 44-19 win over Illinois, but doesn't include a 100-yard kickoff return in the same game that was negated by a penalty.
"Speed kills, as you guys saw with John Ross on that deep ball," said receiver Jaydon Mickens, referring to the 75-yard touchdown play. "Speed kills and we just need to keep doing what we're doing."
