01/19/17 - Shoulder surgery sidelines Washington QB Browning...Washington quarterback Jake Browning underwent surgery on this throwing shoulder earlier this month, the Seattle Times reported. Browning will require about six weeks to of recovery time from the procedure on his right shoulder. Browning suffered the injury during a Nov. 19 game against Arizona State. The Huskies reportedly kept the ailment quiet as they didn't want opponents to know the shoulder was bothering Browning. Browning was highly ineffective in Washington's 24-7 loss to Alabama in the College Football Playoff semifinals on Dec. 31. He was just 20-of-38 passing for 150 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Browning concluded his sophomore season with 3,430 yards, second most in school history. He also tied the Pac-12 record with 43 touchdown passes and was intercepted just nine times. - The Sports Xchange

11/20/16 - Browning helps No. 6 Washington rout Arizona State...Sixth-ranked Washington stumbled around on offense for a quarter Saturday afternoon, leaving room for question about whether the Huskies had fully rebounded from their first loss of the season seven days earlier. Over the three quarters that followed, the Huskies continually found ways to put points on the board. Heisman Trophy candidate Jake Browning threw two touchdown passes, running back Myles Gaskin added 127 rushing yards and a score, and linebacker Keishawn Bierris broke a 35-yard return touchdown of an onside kick as Washington cruised to a 44-18 win over Arizona State on Saturday.
"Coach (Chris Petersen) said it would be tragic if USC beat us twice," senior cornerback Kevin King said, referring to last week's 26-13 loss to USC to dash Washington's hopes of a perfect season. "I was glad to see that our team moved forward to the next step. We didn't act like (the loss) didn't happen, but we didn't dwell on it." Browning completed 27 of 44 passes for 338 yards, connecting on 15 in a row over one stretch, and hit Chico McClatcher and Dante Pettis for long first-half touchdowns as the Huskies (10-1, 7-1 Pac-12) moved into a tie atop the Pac-12 North standings. - The Sports Xchange
11/08/16 - Washington's Browning on record-setting pace...Washington sophomore Jake Browning, with his six-touchdown performance in Saturday night's 66-27 rout of California, boosted his quarterback efficiency rating to 202.79 this season. That not only moves Browning back into the national lead in that category but keeps him on track to break the five-year-old record of 191.78 set by Russell Wilson when he was at Wisconsin in 2011. Browning leads the No. 4 Huskies into an anticipated showdown with USC on Saturday in Seattle with 34 touchdown passes and only three interceptions. He has 2,273 passing yards and a 67.7 completion percentage.
In the win over Cal, Browning broke Washington's single-season record for touchdown passes. Keith Price held the previous record with 33 from 2011. Browning's on track by the end of the regular season to break Jared Goff's Pac-12 record for TD passes (43 from last year). Browning and the Huskies (9-0 overall, 6-0 Pac-12) entered the weekend as the most efficient offense among all Power Five conference teams. Then they put up 704 yards and 66 points against the Golden Bears, the most Washington has scored against Cal in 101 years (the Huskies beat Cal 72-0 in 1915). - The Sports Xchange
10/24/16 - It stands that the real test of No. 5 Washington's validity as a playoff contender is about to begin. The warm ups for the Huskies are done. "As we head down the stretch here it's not always going to be like this with the teams we have coming and there is stuff to talk about and work on," Washington coach Chris Petersen said. Jake Browning threw three touchdown passes to give him 26 for the season, added another rushing TD, and Huskies used a big first half to roll past Oregon State 41-17 on Saturday. After a week off, the Huskies (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12) easily outworked the undermanned Beavers (2-5, 1-3) despite a performance that gives Petersen plenty to work on heading into a schedule that's about to get more difficult.
While getting past Stanford and Oregon earlier this season were important moments for the Huskies, it turns out they were not the tests to prove Washington's worth. The schedule gets more difficult beginning next week with a trip to No. 19 Utah, followed by a road game at California, with USC, Arizona State and a trip to Washington State still looming on the schedule. "We were just paying attention to Oregon State. When Utah comes up, we'll think about Utah," Washington safety Budda Baker said. "We know Utah is a great team." The Huskies won their 10th straight, a streak that started with a victory at Oregon State last season. It is Washington's longest win streak since winning 12 straight during the 2000-01 seasons. - AP Sports

10/09/16 - No. 5 Washington trounces Oregon 70--21...Fifth-ranked Washington took out 12 years of frustration on Oregon. Sophomore quarterback Jake Browning accounted for eight touchdowns as the Huskies snapped a 12-game losing streak to Oregon with a 70-21 win on Saturday evening at Autzen Stadium. Washington beat the Ducks for the first time since 2003. "We came in here today with a little chip on our shoulder," Washington coach Chris Petersen said. "Everybody has a lot of respect for this Oregon program, so these guys prepared as hard as they have prepared all year. "I think it's nice when they prepare that hard and see the fruits of their labor. It's been awhile coming about this game."
Browning was 22 of 28 for 304 yards and six touchdowns while running for two touchdowns. The eight total touchdowns tied a Pac-12 record set by Cal's Pat Barnes (all eight passing) in 1996. The Huskies finished with their highest point total since 1944 and rolled up 682 yards of total offense. "Well, I don't think anybody, certainly me expected to score that many," Petersen said. "It was just one of those games where we came out in the third quarter and they scored, we scored -- we couldn't stop them there for a minute." Running back Myles Gaskin ran 16 times for 197 yards and a touchdown, wide receiver Dante Pettis had eight catches for 134 yards and two scores and wide receiver John Ross added three touchdown catches. - The Sports Xchange
