Washington Huskies are National Team of the Week

November 27, 2018 by Courtesy FWAA

The Washington Huskies won the Apple Cup for a sixth consecutive year and put themselves in position to win the Pac-12 championship with a 28-15 win in the snow at Washington State. For containing one of the nation's top offenses to 237 total yards and winning the Pac-12 North Division, the Huskies (9-3) are the FWAA National Team of the Week for games played November 20-24.

The award is sponsored this season by Reveal Suits.

This is the fourth time for Washington to earn the honor that dates back to 2002.

The FWAA's All-America Committee has selected the weekly winner and all Division I FBS and FCS schools were eligible to be selected.

Washington running back Myles Gaskin broke loose on an 80-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter for a crushing blow to Washington State's conference title and College Football Playoff hopes. The long run put Gaskin over 1,000 yards for the season, and the senior became the first Pac-12 running back to top 1,000 yards rushing in all four seasons. He finished with 170 yards and three touchdowns, and enters this week's Pac-12 Championship Game with 5,131 yards, third-most in Pac-12 history.

In addition to being the Huskies' straight Apple Cup win, it was the third straight year the Huskies kept Washington State from claiming the Pac-12 North Division title. Washington rushed for 258 yards in the snowy conditions and quarterback Jake Browning won his 38th game as a starter, the most by any quarterback in Pac-12 history.<.p>

The other National Team of the Week nominees were:

Minnesota (6-6): The Gophers beat Wisconsin 37-15 to snap a 14-game losing streak in the rivalry and reclaimed Paul Bunyan's Axe on the road. Mohamed Ibrahim ran for 121 yards and a touchdown, Demetris Douglas returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown, and Minnesota is bowl eligible for the first time under second-year head coach P.J. Fleck.

Ohio State (11-1): The Buckeyes crushed arch-rival Michigan 62-39, breaking a host of records within the rivalry in claiming the Big Ten East Division title. Ohio State's 62 points were the most its ever scoring against Michigan, and the most that the Wolverines have ever yielded in regulation. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins broke the Big Ten record for passing touchdowns (41) in a season and the Ohio State record for passing yards (4,003) during the rout.

Texas A&M (8-4): The Aggies beat – or better, outlasted – LSU in the seventh overtime 74-72 to snap a seven-game losing streak to the Tigers, their first win over LSU since 1995. The game broke or tied multiple combined scoring and overtime records. Following his sixth touchdown pass to go with one on the ground, Kellen Mond tossed a two-point conversion pass to Kendrick Rogers to win it after LSU failed on its two-point conversion after its touchdown to start the seventh overtime.
