The Huskies have covered the spread in four straight against winning teams, but are just 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Pac-12 games. Quarterback Jacob Eason completed 15-of-22 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns. Habibi-Likio gained 81 yards on 14 carries.
Both defenses are well-coached - OR defensive coordinator Andy Avalos should be a Broyles Award finalist - and ahead of the offenses, despite the fact that there's a lot of raw talent at quarterback for both teams.
Defensively, the Huskies forced four turnovers on three fumble recoveries - one for a touchdown - and an interception. The season is by no means lost, but there's a real opportunity for Chris Petersen's team to turn a corner and close the gap with OR in the North race.
In the first half Washington was able to lean on their running game. The Ducks (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) are in complete control of the division race at the midpoint of the season and a win Saturday over the Huskies (5-2, 2-2) would make it very hard for anyone to chase OR down.
Washington (5-3, 2-3) reached the OR 38 with 2 ½ minutes left, but Eason was sacked on second and 6 by Popo Aumavae and lost 12 yards.
There's sound logic in believing this will be the toughest conference game of the season for both teams. Was it pass interference on the Ducks? That set up a 33 yard touchdown pass from Eason to freshman wide receiver Nacua Puka giving Washington a two touchdown lead, 28-14 Huskies.
"What did it look like to you guys?" I feel like the Ducks are a better version of what Washington was supposed to be.

Oregon's defense struggled most of the day.
A general view prior to the game between the Washington Huskies and the Arizona State Sun Devils on November 19, 2016 at Husky Stadium in Seattle, Washington. After exposing Oregon's defense in ways it hadn't during its five-game win streak since dropping its season opener to Auburn, the Huskies had just 52 yards of offense and two first downs in the fourth quarter. Eason complete 23 of 30 attempts. He was almost ideal for a stretch of the second and third quarters when he threw TD passes 48 yards to Jordan Chin, 5 yards to Andre Baccellia and his strike to Nacua through a tiny passing window.
But the Ducks made the plays it needed to in the fourth quarter to get Washington off the field and the ball back in Herbert's hands.
"Our defense ended up playing well at the end. I don't think our defense played poorly", Cristobal said. Opponents have reached the red zone just 14 times this season, and OR has given up just two touchdowns. UW finished with 450 total yards and scored on all but one possession int the second half. Regardless of the score, though, this one appears to be tight enough for Washington to cover at home. Washington was already without Richard Newton (foot).
Washington also played the majority of the game without leading receiver Aaron Fuller, who was in briefly in the first quarter and never returned. Asked about Harris on Thursday, Petersen said he was week-to-week.
OR player to watch: Herbert makes Oregon's offense go.
