FINAL: 9th ranked Dawgs survive Cats in OT

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Jake Browning threw a four-yard touchdown pass to Dante Pettis in overtime and the #9 Washington Huskies defense held off the Arizona Wildcats on their lone possession in the extra period to secure a 35-28 win Saturday night in front of 48,787 at Arizona Stadium.


The loss spoiled another sensational night for UA sophomore quarterback Brandon Dawkins.

He ran for 176 yards and two touchdowns in his third start since junior Anu Solomon went down with a knee injury.

Dawkins completed 19-of-31 passes for 167 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

The one touchdown came to Josh Kern with 17 seconds left in the fourth quarter to force the overtime period.

But there was more bad news, the Wildcats (2-2, 0-1) lost another running back. J.J. Taylor left the game in the third quarter with an ankle injury after gaining 97 yards on 19 carries.


Browning finished the night with a pair of touchdown passes for the Huskies (4-0, 1-1). Lavon Coleman ran for 181 yards and a touchdown.

Next up is the first road game for Arizona outside the state. The Wildcats travel to Pasadena to play UCLA next Saturday.
