If the Huskies were looking for any quick-strike lift to get back into this game - well, the opposite happened.
On the UW's first possession, quarterback Jake Locker was stripped by Arizona's Ricky Elmore. Lolomana Mikaele recovered the loose ball at the Huskies' 26-yard line.
Six run plays in a row weren't contested by the UW defense, and Nic Grigsby put a filthy shake-and-bake move on cornerback Quinton Richardson en route to a 4-yard touchdown run - his second score of the game.
Nursing a rib injury, Locker did take off on his first designed run at the 8:15 mark, gaining 2 yards. He was sacked a play later.
Never miss a local story.
The Huskies did mount their best drive since early in the second quarter, going from their own 30 to the Arizona 25. But Locker's pass on fourth-and-12 hit off Jesse Callier's hands.
