Keith Price and Washington's offense finally broke out, with the quarterback throwing for two touchdowns and running for another, and Washington become bowl eligible for the third straight season with a 34-15 win over Utah on Saturday night.
Washington (6-4, 4-3 Pac-12) became the last BCS conference team to top 21 points against an FBS opponent when Bishop Sankey scored on a 2-yard toss sweep late in the third quarter to give the Huskies a 27-15 lead.
Sankey finished with 162 yards on 36 carries and became just the 10th 1,000-yard rusher in Washington history, with two games remaining in the regular season. Sankey has 1,017 yards rushing after entering fall camp the Huskies' No. 3 running back.

The question now...
The Washington Huskies (6-4) go back on the road to finish out the 2012 season, and they travel to Boulder, Colo. to face a beleaguered Buffaloes team giving up over 50 points a game their last seven games. The Dawgs are banged up on defense, but the offense is starting to find their stride again under the guidance of Keith Price. It's an early start, 10:30 am PT, with the TV broadcast on FX.
