Each week we will go over Nebraska's non-conference opponents and how they fared against their competition.
Tennessee-Chattanooga (5-6) - Season Over.
Fresno State (4-8) - Last week - San Jose State (L, 24-27). This week @San Diego State
Matt Faulkner passed for 363 yards and two second half touchdowns, leading the San Jose State Spartans to a 27-24 win over the Fresno State Bulldogs in Western Athletic Conference action at Bulldog Stadium.
Coach Pat Hill said Sunday that he liked what he was seeing from the defense in the two games since Skipper took over for Randy Stewart, who resigned after a season's worth of struggles and consecutive losses to Nevada, Louisiana Tech and New Mexico State where the Bulldogs allowed an average of 44.7 points and 543.7 yards per game.
Washington (7-5) - Last week - Washington State (W, 38-21). Next game - Bowl (TBD)
Keith Price threw three touchdown passes to become Washington’s all-time single-season leader in that category, the final one a 22-yard toss to Chris Polk, and Washington held off rival Washington State 38-21 on Saturday night to win the 104th Apple Cup.
Washington's football future will look a lot like it did in Saturday night's lopsided 38-21 Apple Cup win over the Cougars. "I'm pretty excited," Sarkisian said when asked about two more years of Price to Williams. "They've got a nice rapport. The future's very bright for that combination.
Wyoming (7-4) - Last week - Boise State (L,14-36). This week @Colorado State.
Three weeks later against No. 7 Boise State, Wyoming's freshman quarterback escaped the field healthy, but after his toughest day in a Wyoming uniform. Smith completed 17 of 25 passes but for a season-low 78 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Pokes' 36-14 loss at Bronco Stadium on Saturday.
