Huskies smarting after loss to Oregon, USC up next
SEATTLE (AP) — Steve Sarkisian was annoyed and frustrated walking out of Autzen Stadium after Washington's mistakes turned a chance to showcase the Huskies into an Oregon laugher before the first quarter was even finished.
A day of review didn't make Sarkisian feel any better on Monday.
The Huskies were still smarting after Saturday night's 52-21 loss to the second-ranked Ducks, a game that was essentially decided once Oregon jumped to a 21-0 lead after less than a quarter and led 35-7 at halftime. It was Oregon's ninth straight win over Washington.
The Huskies don't get any relief this week, closing out a brutal stretch against teams ranked in the upper half of The Associated Press Top 25 when they host No. 11 USC on Saturday.
