SEATTLE -- Shortly after sustaining a knee injury in the spring of 2015 that would cost him the season, Washingtons John Ross placed the Rutgers logo on a calendar app on his phone, a countdown to when hed finally get back on the field for the Huskies. Russell Martin Jersey .His return proved worth the wait.Ross caught two touchdown passes and returned a kickoff for another score, Jake Browning threw for 287 yards, and No. 14 Washington looked every bit a Top 25 team with a 48-13 rout of Rutgers on Saturday.I feel amazing. I feel great. Im so thankful, grateful, everything you can think of, Ross said. Im just so happy to be able to do it again.Entering a season of lofty expectations, the Huskies (1-0) raced to a 24-0 first-quarter lead and were never threatened by the rebuilding Scarlet Knights, in their first game under new coach Chris Ash.Browning threw for 277 yards and all three scores in the first half as the Huskies built a 34-3 lead. Browning should have thrown four TDs in the half, but Darrell Daniels dropped a pass in the end zone late in the second quarter.Its good to get out of the gate fast, especially with so many unknowns, unknown coaches, unknown players on both sides, Washington coach Chris Petersen said.Brownings offseason goal was to be better on deep throws. He was certainly good to start the season, hitting Chico McClatcher on a 43-yard touchdown on his second pass of the season, followed by TD throws of 38 and 50 yards to Ross as the Huskies burned Rutgers decision to play man coverage on the outside.Ross missed the entire 2015 season after injuring a knee during spring camp.It was just really cool to obviously have thrown the ball to him but to see him come into his own after missing all of last season and all the anticipation of him coming back, Browning said of Ross.The Huskies were also dynamic on special teams. Ross took a kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown and Dante Pettis returned a punt 68 yards for a score in the third quarter. It was the third time in school history Washington had kickoff and punt return touchdowns in the same game, and first since 2001.THE TAKEAWAYRutgers: Ashs rebuilding job at Rutgers (0-1) is significant and it will take a while for the new offensive system to improve. Chris Laviano was 24 of 40 passing for 168 yards in his first game running a spread offense. Rutgers only TD came on a 10-yard run by Janarion Grant in the fourth quarter against Washingtons backups.There was some good and bad. I thought he probably took too many risks sometimes with the ball, Ash said of Laviano. I thought he did some good things though especially in the second half.Washington: While there were plenty of highlights for the Huskies offense, the run game was absent. Myles Gaskin was held to 57 yards on 15 carries despite Washington spending the majority of the third quarter trying to get the run game established. The Huskies had the luxury to experiment with a 31-point halftime lead.POLL IMPLICATIONSWashington was expected to roll past the Scarlet Knights but such and impressive first half will only go to justify the Huskies preseason ranking. The next two games against Idaho and Portland State arent likely to threaten Washingtons poll positioning so expect them to continue lingering just outside the top 10 for the next few weeks.NUMBER WATCHBrowning threw for more than 300 yards only three times during his freshman season. He nearly had 300 by halftime against Rutgers and if not for the blowout score and the Huskies intent on getting the run game started in the third quarter, Browning would have likely had one of the better passing games of his career.One of Brownings touchdown throws to Ross was a run play that he checked to a pass at the line of scrimmage.Jake made good throws on deep balls early, so we were pleased with that, Washington offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith said.UP NEXTRutgers: The Scarlet Knights get a break facing Howard of the Football Championship Subdivision, the first of three straight home games.Washington: The Huskies meager non-conference schedule continues by hosting Idaho. It will be another chance for the Huskies to give some of its younger players experience before the schedule toughens at the end of September.LAST WORDReally pleased with how fast they started. The first quarter was really, really good on both sides, Washington coach Chris Petersen. J.A. Happ Jersey . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. Drew Hutchison Blue Jays Jersey . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http:///...or-blue-jays-jersey/ . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League.WASHINGTON -- On a day that had already featured a pair of marathon games elsewhere in baseball and a doubleheader the next day, the Minnesota Twins and Washington Nationals needed to end extra innings in a hurry. Ryan Doumit made sure they did. Doumit singled in the go-ahead run, Joe Mauer homered, doubled and singled, and the Minnesota Twins defeated the Washington Nationals 4-3 in 11 innings Saturday. "With a split doubleheader tomorrow, the last thing we need on both sides was to go deep into extra innings," Doumit said. "I was fortunate that I got a pitch to hit there in the 11th and put a good swing on it." Josh Roenicke (2-1) pitched a scoreless 10th inning for the win and Glen Perkins retired Washington in the 11th for his 13th save. "We executed some, missed on a couple opportunities, but you keep getting yourself those opportunities, somebodys going to get the big hit," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Today it was Doumit." The Twins, who were playing their first game in Washington since 1971, have won eight of 11. Pinch hitter Chris Hermann drew a walk off Craig Stammen (3-2) to open the 11th. Jamey Carroll bunted him to second and Mauer was intentionally walked. Doumit then hit a soft line drive to short centre, scoring Hermann. "Its a nice little cherry on top. I think anybody that kind of follows the game and has a good idea, you knew that that was going to happen," Doumit said of getting the hit after the walk to Mauer. "You knew that once Jamey bunted and Joes a career .395 hitter or whatever he is." Doumit has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games, batting .319 (15 for 47) with three doubles, five home runs and 16 runs batted in. "Hes been swinging the bat really good and we had some opportunities," Gardenhire said. Jayson Werth homered and former Twin Denard Span added three hits for Washington, which has lost two straight and six of eight. Theyve scored three runs or less in seven straight games. "Its very frustrating," Washington manager Davey Johnson said. "Its getting my dander up. Were better than this." The Nationals collected 10 hits, but went just 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position. "We got some hits, but didnt string them together," said Adam LaRoche. "We need to start getting three and four in an inning, pushing some guys across." Trailing 3-2, the Nationals tied it against Twins starter Kevin Correia in the seventh. Anthony Rendon led off with a single and was bunted to second. Kurt Suuzuki hit a high bouncer that shortstop Pedro Florimon charged, but he was unable to come up with it and Rendon scored while Suzuki raced to second with a double as the ball rolled into left field. Joe Carter Jersey. . "Whether he looked off of it or whatever, he just missed the ball. Hes got to at least the put the glove on it," Gardenhire said. Correia pitched 6 1-3 innings in his best start in over a month, allowing three earned runs on eight hits. He struck out a season-high seven and didnt walk a batter. Mauer broke a 2-2 tie when he hit a solo homer off Washington starter Gio Gonzalez with one out in the fifth. Gonzalez gave up three runs, two earned, on five hits in six innings. He walked four and struck out seven. Hes winless in his last six starts despite allowing more than two earned runs only once during that stretch. The Nationals broke on top in the third. Span singled with two outs and Werth lined a 1-2 pitch from Correia over the wall for his fifth home run. Minnesota came back with two in the fourth. After Josh Willingham singled off Ryan Zimmermans glove, Justin Morneau hit a smash toward first that got by LaRoche. Willingham scored from first as the ball rolled to the right-field corner. ""I didnt make the play. I gave them that one, cost us the game," LaRoche said. "So that ones on me." Morneau ended up on second on the error and, after Aaron Hicks walked, scored when Brian Dozier singled past a diving Zimmerman.
