A glimpse: Huskies roll

Washington cruised to a 38-6 win Saturday night at a renovated Husky Stadium. The discrepancy in total yards was telling: Huskies outgained Broncos 592 to 346.

Even the most delusional of Husky supporters couldn’t have realistically envisioned the thorough 38-6 beat-down the University of Washington carried out against No. 19 Boise State Saturday night.

The stadium reopening was festive. Here’s game photos from Sportspress Northwest photographer Drew Sellers:

UW TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins didn’t play Saturday night after pleading guilty to a DUI in the off-season. But he was dresseed and ready in warmups.

In 2012, Seferian-Jenkins finished with 69 receptions for 850 yards, both single-season school records for a tight end. / Drew Sellers

UW QB Keith Price overcame an interception on the first drive to finish 23 for 31 for 324 yards and two touchdowns.

TB Bishop Sankey, a Gonzaga Prep graduate rushed 25 times for 161 yards and two touchdowns. Against the Broncos in the Las Vegas Bowl in December, he had 205 yards on 30 carries.

Price sprinted out of the tunnel during introductions. The press box shook. That’s a shot of the west end zone student section to the rear:
