BOULDER, Colo. — The Huskies rallied from a 10-point first-half necessity to better Colorado 38-23 Saturday during Folsom Field. The feat snapped a two-game losing movement for Washington (6-3, 2-3). Here are 3 early impressions:

Shaq, Shaq and some-more Shaq: For a linebacker, Shaq Thompson has incited into one heck of a using back. By halftime, a 228-pound youth had 151 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries. He also had a 41-yard reception, and again valid to be UW’s best choice out of a backfield. For now, during least, he’s UW’s full-time featured using back. Lavon Coleman and Dwayne Washington didn’t play, and Deontae Cooper finished with usually a handful of carries.

Miles better: Thompson’s 24-yard touchdown run in a initial entertain came after a well-time representation from quarterback Cyler Miles on an choice play to a right. Miles had picked adult a initial down progressing on a same play. Overall, Miles looked gentle a week after sitting out opposite Arizona State given of a concussion. He was credited with dual mislaid fumbles — one on a snap that was a tad high, a other on a botched sell with Thompson — though he did chuck for dual touchdowns and was mostly effective after a delayed start.

More special scores: Thompson didn’t play during all on invulnerability — after personification usually one snap during linebacker opposite Arizona State final week — though a UW invulnerability again found a approach into a finish zone. Travis Feeney returned a Sefo Liufau interception 30 yards in a third entertain to extend UW’s lead to 31-23. True beginner Dante Pettis — who progressing had his initial touchdown, on a 28-yard pass from Miles — combined an 87-yard punt lapse for a TD to pull UW’s lead to 38-23 early in a fourth quarter. That was UW’s initial punt lapse for a TD given Charles Frederick did it during Oregon State in 2003, a longest strain but one among all Power Five discussion teams.
