Washington Offensive Players Discuss Challenge of Facing Alabama Defense
The Washington offense took the stage on Tuesday to answer questions about the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl matchup with Alabama and how they would attack the nation's top-ranked defense.
Representing the Huskies were wide receivers John Ross and Dante Pettis, running back Myles Gaskin, and offensive lineman Jake Eldrenkamp. It didn't take long for the question about facing the Crimson Tide's stout defense to come up, and Washington players acknowledges that this is unlike any they have faced this year.
"They're fast. They're smart," running back Myles Gaskin said. "Everybody runs to the ball. They give 100 percent each play. It's much different than any team we've ever played against."
Washington has been held to fewer than 30 points just one time this season, and that was the 26-13 loss to Southern Cal in November. Otherwise, the Pac-12 champions have played at a remarkably high level on offense, but Saturday's game will present a major challenge.
"A very good defense," wide receiver John Ross said. "We definitely haven't seen a defense like this, and it'll be awesome to play these guys come Saturday."
