Pickett rebounds against Hoosiers

No. 22 Washington 38, Indiana 13

The Associated Press

SEATTLE - Cody Pickett threw two of his three touchdown passes to Reggie Williams as No. 22 Washington beat Indiana 38-13 Saturday.

Freshman tailback Shelton Sampson ran for two TDs as the Huskies (1-1) gave Keith Gilbertson his first victory as coach, and rebounded from a disappointing 28-9 loss at Ohio State last week.

Washington beat Indiana (0-2) with 28 unanswered points in the third quarter. The Hoosiers led 13-10 after Bryan Robertson kicked a 39-yard field goal on the first drive of the second half.

Moments later, Pickett threw a 10-yard crossing strike to Williams and the All-America receiver turned it into a 70-yard touchdown reception.

Williams dodged two tackles as he swept to the right sideline, then got a great block by Charles Frederick to clear the final 30 yards. He skipped past another tackler at the goal line to make it 17-13.

It was the seventh time Pickett has thrown a TD pass of at least 70 yards, with four of those plays to Williams.

One week after opening at Connecticut, Indiana showed no early signs of fatigue from the coast-to-coast tour. The Hoosiers, though, wore down in the third quarter and couldn't avoid their eighth straight loss.

Indiana was driving and seemed poised to erase the 17-13 deficit when everything changed on a disputed call.

Matt LoVecchio tossed a swing pass to Chris Taylor that was broken up by Greg Carothers, but officials ruled it a lateral and Graham Lasee recovered for Washington.

That turnover led to a 24-13 lead after Sampson's 6-yard TD.

Pickett was 18-of-26 passing for 290 yards with one interception. Williams had four catches for 98 yards and two TDs. LoVecchio was 16-of-29 passing for 199 yards with one interception.
