Washington begins spring ball with questions at QB

SEATTLE (AP) Coach Chris Petersen began his second spring practice with Washington on Monday with no clue who will start at quarterback for the Huskies when the 2015 season begins. It's not the only position where Washington has questions. It may take at least a few more months before Petersen finalizes a depth chart for any spot. ''We're going to let these guys compete, and we...

QB Browning heads 2nd class for Petersen's Huskies

SEATTLE (AP) Washington coach Chris Petersen believes he found something special in quarterback Jake Browning. So the last thing Petersen wants is additional expectations heaped on the national record holder for career touchdown passes. Yet even Petersen had to admit on Wednesday's national letter of intent day that Browning has some of the same characteristics Petersen saw in Kellen...

4-Star RB Chris Warren Picks Texas Over Washington

The Texas Longhorns haven’t won every recruiting battle Wednesday morning, but overall, they are putting a rather nice class together. Just minutes ago, UT landed four-star running back Chris Warren over Washington. Warren made the decision at his high school in Rockwall, Texas. Instead of laying out hats, he chose to bring two photos of himself to the announcement – one with...

Fiesta Bowl: Boise State Builds Back Its Brand And Bears Down To Beat Arizona

This was supposed to be the Fiesta Bowl Boise State would not win. This was supposed to be the splash of cold water on an afternoon in suburban Phoenix when — interestingly enough — the weather outside University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale was cold, gray, and wet. This was supposed to be the main-event bowl game Boise State would not solve, the game in which this program’s...

Huskies prep for Apple Cup vs. Washington St

SEATTLE (AP) Washington coach Chris Petersen had barely sat down Monday when he started getting peppered with questions about coaching in his first Apple Cup. Petersen at least wanted a moment to recognize what the Huskies accomplished over the weekend, becoming bowl eligible and taking some of the stress out of his first matchup with Washington State. ''Does anyone not have any...

Chris Petersen stands behind late clock management

SEATTLE (AP) Washington coach Chris Petersen was still sticking with his chart two days after a disputed decision to run one more play late against Arizona backfired on the Huskies. Deontae Cooper's fumble on first down with 1:33 left led to No. 15 Arizona's field goal on the final play for a 27-26 victory that handed the Huskies their fifth loss against a ranked team this season...

Washington looks to end 2-game slide vs. Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Washington coach Chris Petersen doesn't lose often, let alone two in a row. So this is strange territory as he endures his first slide since 2007, when he was coaching perennial power Boise State. But Petersen's message remains steadfast to the Huskies (5-3, 1-3 Pac-12): Ignore the ''outside noise.'' Tune out what's being written on social media sites. Concentrate...

Why Chris Petersen’s struggles at UW matter to Bronco Nation.

  It’s not because what many in Bronco Nation believe, being it somehow it reflects, justifies and somehow affirms Boise States past as a power football school.   One and three was not the start to the  PAC 12 season Husky fans expected when you add in the opener against Hawaii with the shootout win against EWU a Team Idaho State nearly beat on the road.

Huskies set to face nemesis No. 9 Oregon

SEATTLE (AP) Chris Petersen knows about the rivalry between Oregon and Washington and how one-sided it can be. Except when Petersen was an assistant at Oregon back in the late 1990s, the rivalry had a definite lean toward the Huskies. ''I know how the rivalry was because when I was at Oregon it was kind of flipped in a lot of ways,'' Petersen said Monday. ''I think there are interesting...

Petersen takes blame for Huskies' offensive woes

SEATTLE (AP) Washington coach Chris Petersen came to the defense of his starting quarterback Monday, while simultaneously shouldering the blame for poor coaching decisions. In his weekly news conference, Petersen acknowledged that he would like better play from quarterback Cyler Miles, but that doesn't necessarily mean he puts all the responsibility on the sophomore.

Chris Petersen, You’re Not In Boise — Or The WAC — Anymore

On one hand, the Stanford Cardinal thoroughly deserved to win Saturday afternoon’s Pac-12 North slugfest against the Washington Huskies. The Trees towered over the Dawgs for most of a sunny and shadowy day at Husky Stadium, limiting Washington to only 179 yards, under 100 in both passing and rushing yards. Stanford has not been a pretty team to watch this season, but the Cardinals...

Petersen makes Pac-12 debut vs. No. 16 Stanford

SEATTLE (AP) Under different circumstances, Washington coach Chris Petersen would have already coached his first Pac-12 Conference game. Following the 2010 season when Jim Harbaugh made the jump to the NFL, Stanford was in need of a head coach. And with Boise State at the height of its success under Petersen, it was a no-brainer for the Cardinal to reach out. Stanford was not alone...
