Washington fans, media react to Huskies’ lackluster first half vs. Oregon State

Favored by almost 4 touchdowns vs. Oregon State, many thought that the No. 6 Washington Huskies would make quick work of the Beavers on Saturday. After all, Oregon State has been outscored 190-99 on the year and its lone win on the season was a 35-32 squeaker against FCS Portland State.

However, the Huskies have looked out of sorts so far in the game, with a number of dropped passes stalling drives, costly penalties that took points off the board, a missed field-goal attempt and 3 sacks allowed.

Washington led 7-0 at halftime, and fans and media alike sounded off in frustration.

The Huskies did have an impressive 98-yard drive that was capped by an 11-yard Jake Browning TD run, but the Dawgs looked pretty toothless for much of the first half.

Chris Petersen is considered a master tactician, so expect Washington to come out with more fire after the break.
