Huskies hold off Aggies

Saturday afternoon was a beautiful fall day in Seattle as the Washington Huskies hosted the Utah State Aggies from the Mountain West Conference. USU has been one of the better mid-major conference teams over the past few years so everyone know it would not be a walk in the park. Dwayne Washington was the main muscle behind the Huskies attack, but this time as a receiver with 131 yards and two scores. Jake Browning looked solid again with 386 yards and 3 TD passes on the way to a 31-17 victory over the Aggies.  This was the last warm up before the Pac-12 season starts next week against Cal.
