SEATTLE -- It stands that the real test of No. Nike Air Max Plus Schweiz Store . 5 Washingtons validity as a playoff contender is about to begin.The warm ups for the Huskies are done.As we head down the stretch here its not always going to be like this with the teams we have coming and there is stuff to talk about and work on, Washington coach Chris Petersen said.Jake Browning threw three touchdown passes to give him 26 for the season, added another rushing TD, and Huskies used a big first half to roll past Oregon State 41-17 on Saturday.After a week off, the Huskies (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12) easily outworked the undermanned Beavers (2-5, 1-3) despite a performance that gives Petersen plenty to work on heading into a schedule thats about to get more difficult.While getting past Stanford and Oregon earlier this season were important moments for the Huskies, it turns out they were not the tests to prove Washingtons worth. The schedule gets more difficult beginning next week with a trip to No. 19 Utah, followed by a road game at California, with USC, Arizona State and a trip to Washington State still looming on the schedule.We were just paying attention to Oregon State. When Utah comes up, well think about Utah, Washington safety Budda Baker said. We know Utah is a great team.The Huskies won their 10th straight, a streak that started with a victory at Oregon State last season. It is Washingtons longest win streak since winning 12 straight during the 2000-01 seasons.And they continue to dominate the first half. Washington put away this expected blowout early, jumping to a 21-0 lead after one quarter and leading 31-0 at halftime. Washington has now outscored opponents 100-7 in the first quarter and 200-24 in the first half this season.We came out pretty hot, Washington wide receiver John Ross said. We had a great week of practice and those are the kind of weeks that we need to stay consistent.Browning led the attack, even if his completion percentage wasnt up to the standard he set through the first six games when he led the country hitting 72 percent of his throws. Browning threw touchdowns of 19 yards to Aaron Fuller and 23 yards to Dante Pettis sandwiched around his own 1-yard TD run in the first quarter.Browning added a 41-yard touchdown pass to Pettis in the third quarter. Browning finished 14 of 28 for 291 yards and Petersen said part of the game plan was to take more shots downfield leading to the lower completion percentage.Ross had 115 yards receiving and Pettis added 112 yards -- both with four catches -- giving the Huskies two receivers with more than 100 yards for the first time since 2002.The depleted Beavers started third-string quarterback Marcus McMaryion after Darell Garretson and Conor Blount were injured. McMaryion was 12 of 26 for 148 yards and two interceptions.The Beavers were also without starting running back Ryan Nall due to a foot injury aggravated in last weeks loss to Utah. Tim Cook had 108 yards rushing and a late TD, while Victor Bolden Jr. had a 75-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.If you watch college football or care about defense of care about the Pac-12 on defense you know how good those guys are up front and they are elite, Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said of Washingtons defense.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Huskies should move up at least one spot from No. 5 after No. 2 Ohio States loss to Penn State. An impressive win at Utah next week might be enough to sway some voters for a spot even higher.THE TAKEAWAYOregon State: The Beavers came in with the second-best pass defense in the Pac-12 giving up just 179.5 yards per game. But Washington attacked from the start and exposed holes in what has been a very good secondary.Washington: Injuries could be a concern going into next week against Utah. Washington played without starting DE Joe Mathis, the team leader with five sacks. Mathis was on the sideline during the game but his absence left Washington undersized on the end of its defensive line. Connor OBrien started in place of Mathis.RUNNING AWAYOne bright spot for Washingtons offense was the performance by Myles Gaskin. After breaking out for 197 yards rushing against Oregon, Gaskin followed up with 128 yards on 18 carries, most of that coming in just over a quarter. Gaskin had just two carries for 15 yards in the first quarter and by the middle of the third quarter had his third straight 100-yard game.WASHINGTON FIXTURESince 1961, Frazer Cook has been the voice of the University of Washington band for any football game where the entire band is performing, home, away and bowl games. Cook, 74, missed his first game in 55 years on Saturday. The school Cook was ill but did not provide any specifics.UP NEXT:Oregon State: The Beavers return home to host Washington State.Washington: The Huskies head to Salt Lake City for a showdown with No. 19 Utah.

Nike Air Max Plus Schweiz . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Need some help setting your fantasy lineup? NFL Nation reporters are here to help with predictions for every Week 6 game. The Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers have been excluded after playing on Thursday night.49ERS AT BILLSSan Francisco 49ersColin Kaepernick is back as the starting quarterback for the 49ers but Sundays return has all the makings of a long day for him. The Bills are fourth in the NFL in sack percentage and sixth in interception percentage through the first five weeks. When Kaepernick last started, he was taking a sack on 10 percent of his attempts from inside the pocket, worst in the NFL. And San Franciscos offensive line is coming off a game when it gave up seven sacks to Arizona. This is Kaepernicks first start since Week 8 of last season, so its probably wise not to expect much in terms of fantasy production. -- Nick WagonerBuffalo BillsLeSean McCoy will surpass his Week 5 rushing total of 150 yards. The 49ers have the NFLs second-worst run ddefense and are likely to be playing from behind against a heavily-favored Bills team. Air Max Plus Schweiz Outlet. That should allow McCoy to get plenty of touches in the second half and drive up his rushing total. Backups Mike Gillislee and Reggie Bush totaled only three carries in Sundays win against the Rams, so they arent likely to poach carries from McCoy against San Francisco. -- Mike RodakEAGLES AT REDSKINSPhiladelphia EaglesRookie Wendell Smallwood will lead the Eagles in rushing. Running back Ryan Mathews fell ill on Friday and was excused from practice. Coach Doug Pederson expects Mathews to play. Regardless, it sounds like the coaching staff wants to get Smallwood more involved moving forward. If Mathews cant go or is limited, this could be a good opportunity for the fifth-round pick out of West Virginia to secure a larger role. -- Tim McManus ' ' '
