2001 RECORD: 8-4 (6-2, T2 in Pac-10)
FINAL RANKING: No. 19 AP, No. 19 coaches' poll
Point differential for the Huskies in '01, only the second time in 25 years that Washington had given up more points than it scored.
An opposing coach's view
A big-time wideout and a solid line will carry the Huskies
" Quarterback Cody Pickett was flustered at times last year, and after starting for a full season, there will be pressure on him to perform.... Wideout Reggie Williams is a big-time player. He has natural field sense and wants the ball on every play.... The offensive line is pretty stacked and will be the soul of the team.... If they can rebuild the line, the defense could be a force. Guys like linebacker Kai Ellis have paid their dues and are ready to dominate.... The kids believe in Rick Neuheisel."
