Draft Scout Jake Browning News
09/10/17 - Washington coach Chris Petersen and his players on offense were not pleased with what they called "a wake-up call" the previous week. They responded to the challenge with a balanced performance, but it was the defense that left the biggest mark on Saturday night. Jake Browning threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns and the defense forced four turnovers as seventh-ranked Washington stifled Montana 63-7 in its home opener at Husky Stadium in Seattle. The Huskies (2-0) clicked early on offense and had help on special teams, but it was the defense that kept the pressure on throughout. The Grizzlies (1-1) gained just 31 of their 163 total yards on the ground.
Washington didn't make it much easier in the passing game. Leading by 35 late in the third quarter, cornerback Jomon Dotson intercepted Montana quarterback Reese Phillips and zig-zagged to both sides of the field before completing the 68-yard return to extend the lead to 49-7. The Huskies racked up nine tackles for a loss, four sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries and posted a second-half shutout. "I thought our defense played well. We stopped them when we really needed to," Petersen said. "When you score on defense, I think that just always changes things. I don't know why it is, but it does." Offensively, Browning completed 22 of 26 passes, including five to senior tight end Will Dissly, who hauled in two touchdown throws. - The Sports Xchange
09/01/17 - Washington, which entertained a lofty preseason ranking and high expectations, got off to a slow start before finally showing up in the season opener against Rutgers on Friday. The No. 8 Huskies got their offense in gear after halftime, turning a tight game into a 30-14 victory over the pesky Scarlet Knights in front of 46,093 fans at High Point Solutions Stadium. Washington handed Rutgers its 10th straight loss dating back to 2016 and beat the Scarlet Knights in the season opener for the second straight year. Junior quarterback Jake Browning, who finished sixth in the Heisman voting last season, recovered from a sluggish first half to throw a pair of touchdowns. He is trying to improve on a sophomore season in which he tied the Pac-12 record with 43 touchdown passes.
Browning finished 17-for-30 for 284 yards, 203 of which came in the second half. Senior kicker Tristan Vizcaino added three field goals in the win. Redshirt freshman cornerback Byron Murphy spearheaded the defensive effort for the defending Pac-12 champions with a pair of interceptions, while also downing two punts inside Rutgers' 3-yard line on special teams. The Huskies extended a three-point halftime lead to 17-7 when Browning found a wide-open Lavon Coleman out of the backfield for a 7-yard touchdown on third-and-goal with 9:17 left in the third quarter. Browning later added an 18-yard scoring pass to running back Myles Gaskin that made it a 20-point game on the first play of the fourth quarter. - The Sports Xchange
08/18/17 - QB Jake Browning sensitivity about his offseason shoulder surgery makes it clear he knows deep inside that the program is highly dependent on his health. "If it was my left shoulder, no one would care," Browning said of the surgery.

07/27/17 - QB Jake Browning was seventh nationally last season in passing efficiency (167.5 rating), but he was ineffective in a late-season loss to USC and a defeat to Alabama in a College Football Playoff semifinal. It was later revealed he was suffering from an undisclosed injury to his throwing shoulder, which required offseason surgery. "I feel good," he told the Pac-12 Network on Wednesday. "It hasn't held me back from anything for months now. All ready to go." Browning has thrown for 6,385 yards and 59 touchdowns in two seasons, with 19 interceptions.
