SEATTLE (AP) Washington has looked strong both offensively and defensively this year. The problem is, it hasn't happened in the same game.

The opener at Hawaii saw the Huskies eke out a one-point win thanks to the defense holding the Rainbow Warriors to 16 points. Last Saturday against Eastern Washington was a different story, as Washington's offense came to the rescue in a 59-52 victory.

While the Huskies search for consistency, coach Chris Petersen would be happy to see his offense keep performing at the level it did against Eastern Washington. After failing to score in the second half of its opener, Washington moved the ball much better on Saturday, thanks largely to 356 rushing yards. The Huskies were also efficient through the air with new starter Cyler Miles under center.
