Huskies 2-0 But Seeking Some Consistency

Washington has looked strong both offensively and defensively this year. The problem is, it hasn't happened in the same game. The opener at Hawaii saw the Huskies eke out a one-point win thanks to the defense holding the Rainbow Warriors to 16 points. Last Saturday against Eastern Washington was a different story, as Washington's offense came to the rescue in a 59-52 victory. While the Huskies search for consistency, coach Chris Petersen would be happy to see his offense keep performing at the level it did against Eastern Washington. After failing to score in the second half of its opener, Washington moved the ball much better on Saturday, thanks largely to 356 rushing yards. The Huskies were also efficient through the air with new starter Cyler Miles under center. SEATTLE (AP) – September 9, 2014

College Of Idaho Football Wins Opener

The College of Idaho, which reinstated the football program it disbanded 37 years ago, preserved its season-opening win with a blocked field goal. Quarterback Teejay Gordon had 335 yards in total offense and three touchdowns and Charlie Shepherd blocked a field goal with 29 seconds left to give the Yotes a 35-34 win over NCAA Division III Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. Saturday's game featured back-to-back kickoff returns for touchdowns, a botched kickoff and a blocked extra point. The Idaho Press Tribune reports the outcome was very similar to the team's last game, on Nov. 12, 1977. In that contest, the Yotes beat Pacific 24-23 in Caldwell after the College of Idaho was able to stop a 2-point conversion attempt. The Coyotes, a member of the NAIA Frontier Conference, host Montana Western on Saturday. CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) – September 9, 2014
