Sankey leads No. 16 Huskies past Wildcats

SEATTLE (AP) — Bishop Sankey carried a school-record 40 times for 161 yards and a touchdown and Keith Price threw for two touchdowns to help No. 16 Washington beat Arizona 31-13 on Saturday night.

Sankey outperformed Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey, the NCAA’s leading rusher in 2012. Sankey surpassed the school record of 38 carries set by Corey Dillon in 1996 against Washington State as stormy conditions forced both teams to limit their passing games.

Meanwhile, Sankey, who entered as the country’s No. 2 leading rusher at 148.7 yards per game, continued to be brilliant for the Huskies. He carried for 101 yards on 23 carries in the first half alone as Washington built a 11-6 lead.
