Game Day: UH at Washington

UH's first road game of the season in what is said to be one of the loudest stadiums in all of college football. One of the keys to the game is for UH to take the crowd out of it early. But Washington is "on edge" and eager to put on a good showing against the Warriors after nearly blowing it against I-AA Eastern Washington last week.

How much will Bryant Moniz and the passing game improve from last week? Although I love how fast Moniz looks this year when he's running the ball, I also get "on edge" when he takes off. You know Washington will be keying on him.

UH's offensive line gave up five sacks last week. Washington's defensive line is supposedly better than Colorado's. Let's hope UH can give Moniz time to get in sync with his receivers.

If Joey Iosefa gets to the second level, I have visions of Nasti Nate-style bowlings-over of unsuspecting DBs.

I want to see punt returner Scott Harding get some space to run. From what I saw last week, he looks like he could be a good one.

Colorado was supposed to run the ball down the Warriors' throat last week. UH held them to 17 yards rushing. Washington tailback Chris Polk is coming off 1400 rushing yards last season. It'll be an interesting matchup to watch.

Here are some game day articles:
