Washington Struggling With Consistency

Washington Football

The Washington Huskies slipped into the Bowl season with a 6-6 record, which reflects their inconsistencies this year. Washington is just 1-3 SU and ATS in their past four games following a win. The Huskies will look to rectify that when they clash with Southern Mississippi in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

Shark Bites
  • Southern Miss is 3-16 in their last 19 games following an ATS loss.
  • Washington is 5-1 ATS in their past six games in December.
  • Receiver Michael Thomas has 100-plus yards in seven of his past 10 games.

Extra practice for Jake Browning is not a bad thing for Washington as the freshman is looking to build on his solid season. Browning was the third-highest rated pro-style quarterback coming into college this season and the Huskies offense is going to go as far as his arm will take them over the next few seasons.

Not enough people are talking about Todd Monken this season after he turned a team who has won a combined four games the past two years into a Bowl season team. The Golden Eagles have been good on both sides of the ball and have netted an average scoring margin of +15.8 this season.
