A sideshow by hypercriticism of Chris Petersen’s comments about late starts and the Washington non-conference schedule. We’ll get to that, but the final score was 38-7 because Journalism school told me not to bury the lede.

Browning passed for two touchdowns and scored on a 21-yard option run as the sixth-ranked Huskies smothered California 38-7 on Saturday night.
Myles Gaskin added a pair of rushing touchdowns for Washington (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12), which led 24-0 at the half.
The second half was more of the same. California couldn’t move the ball on offence and the Huskies moved the ball well when they held the ball, though things could have been better. Cal was able to reach the end zone on a scoop-and-score after Pettis had the ball punched from his grasp on a screen.
California: The Bears brutal schedule has caught up with them. After starting 3-0, the Bears have dropped three straight to Southern California, Oregon and Washington. The Bears thoroughly dominated along the line of scrimmage by the Huskies. It doesn’t get easier next week with undefeated Washington State visiting.
