No. 8 Washington uses 45-point first half to cruise past California 59-32
SEATTLE (AP) — Before Michael Penix Jr. ever took a snap, stepped away from a pass rusher or connected with one of his wide receivers, his teammates had already staked No. 8 Washington to a two touchdown lead. That’s a scary proposition when facing arguably the most powerful offense in the country. Rome Odunze scored on an 83-yard punt return and a 35-yard reception in the first half, Edefuan Ulofoshio returned an interception 45 yards for a score on the first possession of the game, and Washington scored 45 first-half points on its way to a 59-32 win over California on Saturday night. “It’s good to help him out. That’s what we’ve been talking about this whole year just to create plays for our offense and give them the ball back as much as possible,” Ulofoshio said.
