There was a lot of preseason hype about the Huskies. Unfortunately, they were untested in their nonconference schedule beating lightweights including Rutgers, Idaho and Portland State.
Things get real with a road trip to Arizona for their first conference game. They have to stay focused even though they are hosting Stanford next.
The Wildcats are 2-1 and could easily be 3-0, they lost by 2 points in their opener against BYU. This groups is always a tricky one to figure out and they have not covered in any of their three games thus far.
It is hard to find a playable line at the moment because of the uncertainty around QB Anu Solomon. His absence has been huge.
The Huskies have been winning big but have not really impressed because the competition has been so crummy.
Their numbers look OK but I am little concerned by the fact that they have not been able to run the ball down opponents’ throat, especially since they have been playing with the lead essentially all season.
The defense has been stingy, as it should be against inferior opponents…and they may get lucky this week facing a backup QB.
Sophomore Jake Browning has looked really good. Yes the competition has been light but he has been very accurate, which is a good sign.
I also like that he spreads the ball around – two receivers already have four scoring catches.
Washington has a great receiving corps with lots of variety – speedy Julian Edelman types as well as a behemoth TE Darrell Daniels.
Playing BYU is always physical and in the case of Arizona they lost their QB Anu Solomon, who has not played since.
Backup Brandon Dawkins has been adequate in his stead, which is all that was needed to beat the likes of Grambling and Hawaii. More will be needed if they are going to win this one.
Dawkins is a very good athlete though and even though he is not lighting it up through the air he has run for more than 200 yards through two starts.
RB Nick Wilson is an underrated back. He rippled off 100+ in the first two games but left the Hawaii game with an injury and it is not clear if he will play on Saturday.
In that Hawaii game J.J. Taylor stepped up bit time with 168 yards on the ground but he is just 155 pounds and will find it a lot tougher against the likes of Washington.
He is much better as a change of pace. If Wilson can’t got Dawkins’ running ability will be challenged too.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Prediction
Washington is the better team, even is Arizona is fully healthy, which they aren’t. Arizona get a little bump for being at home but Tucson is hardly the most feared place to go and play football.
It is kind of a perfect storm for an easy road win.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington -11
The early line was -11 but now this one is hard to find. When it gets put back up it wouldn’t surprise me if it is more like 17 where you need a few touchdowns to get the cover.
Certainly a lot for a road favourite within the conference but I think the Huskies can do it. First half lines might be viable too in case they coast in the second half.
