2017 Husky Football: Washington 38, Oregon 3

All is right in the world.  We were back to normal November weather at Husky Stadium (wet and cold), and the Huskies thumped the Oregon Ducks, 38-3.  The game was highlighted by a 64 yard punt return touchdown by Dante Pettis, which broke the game open and set the NCAA career punt return touchdown record.
