Washington: By the numbers

10/11/2012

111.8 – Keith Price's pass efficiency rating, placing him last in the Pac-12

What’s particularly stunning about Price’s rating is the fact that he finished the 2011 campaign at No. 2 mark in the conference in the same category (161.9).

3: Consecutive games in which Bishop Sankey has rushed for more than 100 yards

The Washington defense allows an average of just 173.8 yards per game through the air, thanks in part to a talent-laden secondary featuring cornerback Desmond Trufant, as well as safeties Sean Parker and Shaq Thompson.

100: Washington’s winning percentage at home in 2012

Playing at CenturyLink Field while Husky Stadium is being renovated this season, the Huskies are a perfect 3-0 at home. It’s worth noting, however, that Washington is 0-2 on the road with the losses at the hands of arguably the two toughest teams it has faced so far -- No. 9 LSU and No. 2 Oregon.

5: The number of years that Steve Sarkisian and Lane Kiffin worked together at USC

Before they were head coaches, Sarkisian and Kiffin were offensive assistants for Pete Carroll at USC. As such, it’s safe to assume that Sarkisian knows a thing or two about Kiffin’s offensive tendencies, and vice versa.
