                  === Washington routs No. 19 Boise State ===
 
 Seattle,  WA  (Sports Network)  - Washington  re-opened Husky Stadium Saturday
 with  an  emphatic 38-6  thumping of  19th-ranked Boise  State, as the Huskies
 racked up 592 total yards and scored 28 unanswered points to win going away.
 
 Keith  Price threw for 324 yards with two touchdowns and an interception while
 Bishop  Sankey rushed  for 161  yards and  two scores  on 25  carries for  the
 Huskies (1-0), who avenged last seasons's Las Vegas Bowl loss to the Broncos.
 
 Boise  State  (0-1) dropped its season  opener for the second straight season,
 though  Saturday's loss  was  much more  humbling than  its  17-13 setback  at
 Michigan State a year ago.
 
 Joe Southwick threw for just 152 yards and an interception on 25-of-40 passes.
 
 An  extensive  renovation of Husky  Stadium forced  Washington to play all its
 games last season at CenturyLink Field. The 18-month hiatus was well worth the
 wait   for  the   Husky  faithful  after  Price  recovered  from  throwing  an
 interception on the second play from scrimmage.
 
 The  senior signal-caller carried Washington to a 16-play, 84-yard trek on its
 second possession that ended with Sankey barreling in from a yard out.
 
 Boise  State's  Dan Goodale  had a  34-yard field goal  attempt blocked on the
 ensuing  touch, but countered Travis Coons' 30-yarder with a 37-yard kick just
 before halftime.
 
 Another promising Boise State drive out of the break stalled inside the 5-yard
 line, and Goodale was called in for a 20-yarder.
 
 It was all Huskies from there.
 
 Price and Kasen Williams, after hooking up for 38 yards, connected on the next
 play for a 19-yard score midway through the third quarter.
 
 After Jay Ajayi was stuffed on 4th-and-1 from the Washington 35-yard line, the
 Huskies  went right  down the field and  scored when Price rolled to his left,
 threw across his body and found Joshua Perkins in the back of the end zone for
 an 18-yard TD late in the third.
 
 Sankey  and Dwayne Washington each ran for touchdowns in the fourth quarter to
 complete the blowout.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Washington's Jaydon Mickens had a game-high nine catch for 109 yards ... Ajayi
