Huskies hold off Eagles in wild 59-52 win

The Associated Press

SEATTLE (AP) Cyler Miles ran for three touchdowns rushing and threw for another in his season debut at quarterback, and Washington withstood seven touchdown passes from Eastern Washington quarterback Vernon Adams Jr., in a wild 59-52 win on Saturday.

Washington jumped to a 21-0 lead in less than eight minutes, saw that entire advantage evaporate under a barrage of Adams TD passes, then took advantage of a key turnover early in the fourth quarter to finally shake the FCS powerhouse.

Down 45-44, Miles' 5-yard TD run on the first play of the fourth quarter and the ensuing 2-point conversion pass to Kasen Williams put the Huskies (2-0) up 52-45. Eastern Washington (2-1) was driving for a potential tying score but Terence Grady was stripped at the Washington 16 and Travis Feeney recovered. Miles then scored on a 3-yard run with 7:45 left for a 59-45 lead.

Adams finished 31 of 46 for a career-high 475 yards.
