Washington is obliterating Portland State here at CenturyLink Field, 45-0 at the half.
A few quick thoughts and notes on the feel-good game Washington hoped this would be:
> The 45 points ties a school record for points in a half. The last time Washington scored 45 in a half was in 1999 against Oregon State.
> Shaq Thomspon, who is having a big day, blocked a field-goal attempt and Tre Watson returned it 76 yards for a touchdown. That was the first time Washington blocked a field goal and returned it for a touchdown since facing Michigan in 2001.
> Nose tackle Danny Shelton limped off in the first half.
> Running back Willis Wilson and offensive linemen Colin Tanigawa and Erik Kohler did not suit up for the game.
> Portland State is not Stanford.
