At No. 6 Washington 48, Fresno State 16: Dante Pettis had four touchdowns including an NCAA record-tying eighth punt return touchdowns of his career, and Washington finished off the undercard of its schedule with a rout of Fresno State on Saturday. Pettis had touchdown receptions of 4 and 7 yards in the first half, and a 73-yard TD pass from Jake Browning on the second play of the second half to give Washington (3-0) a 48-7 lead. But it was his 77-yard punt return late in the first quarter that left Husky Stadium buzzing and put Pettis’ name into another record book.
Pettis caught the kick from Blake Cusick near the Washington sideline, shook one defender initially, hurdled another in the open field and finally stepped through a last tackle attempt. Pettis also got a key downfield block from Myles Bryant to complete the return and give Washington a 27-0 lead.
