Price's 5 TDs lead Washington past Colorado 38-3

AP Sports Writer

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Keith Price threw a career-best five
touchdown passes and Washington overcame a slow start to whip
hapless Colorado 38-3 on Saturday for the Huskies' fourth
straight win.

Price's five TDs to five different receivers tied the school
record set by Chris Rowland in 1973 and tied by Jake Locker in

Bishop Sankey atoned for a first-half fumble at the 1 by running
through Colorado's defense for 139 yards and collecting 48 more
on four receptions as the Huskies (7-4, 5-3 Pac-12) won
consecutive road games for just the second time in the last

The Huskies can secure their first eight-win season since 2001
with a win at Washington State next week.

After committing five costly turnovers in this one, the
Buffaloes (1-10, 1-7) will have to beat Utah on Friday to avoid
the worst record in school history and their first winless
season at home since 1920.

Price completed 22 of 29 passes for 248 yards with no

The Buffaloes held an opponent scoreless in the first quarter
for the first time this season but still trailed 7-0 at halftime
after running their own scoreless streak at Folsom Field to
eight quarters.

Two big blunders by the Buffs led to 14 quick points and ended
hopes of an upset in a stadium that was mostly empty with the
campus on Thanksgiving break and the program in a downward
spiral under second-year coach Jon Embree.

A punt hit Colorado's Nelson Spruce, and Will Shamburger
recovered for Washington at the Colorado 35 after a save by
teammate Kevin Smith as the ball was bouncing out of bounds.
Three plays later, Price found Kasen Williams in the end zone
for a 17-yard TD.

Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, playing defensive end
on third downs with Washington's defensive line riddled with
injuries, then recovered a fumble after Josh Shirley's
sack-strip of Colorado's Jordan Webb. Fifteen seconds later,
Price hit Kendyl Taylor for a 23-yard touchdown and a 21-0 lead.

Marques Mosley returned the ensuing kickoff 59 yards, setting up
Will Oliver's 37-yard field goal that snapped the Buffs' home
scoring drought, which had dated to the first half of a game
against Arizona State on Oct. 11. They were subsequently shut
out 48-0 by Stanford.

The Huskies responded with a 17-point blitz that included TD
passes from Price of 3 yards to Seferian-Jenkins and 18 yards to
Jaydon Mickens.

Sophomore Connor Wood got his first start for the Buffs but was
replaced by Webb, who started the first nine games, after
throwing two interceptions in five drives that netted 50 yards.
Things didn't get much better - Webb ran a quarterback sneak on
first down in an apparent miscommunication from the sideline.

The Huskies caught the first big break of the game when Marcus
Peters pressured Wood into a poor pass that Shaq Thompson
intercepted at midfield. After reaching the Colorado 13,
however, the drive stalled and on fourth-and-10, Travis Coons
banged the ball off the left upright.

He later was good from 25 yards out.

Later, Buffs linebacker Doug Rippy stripped Sankey at the 1 and
Jon Major recovered for Colorado. Wood quickly followed with his
second interception, this one picked off by safety Sean Parker.

Price found Cody Bruns with a 3-yard TD toss with 1:02 left in
the first half for a 7-0 halftime lead.
