It could be a warm night in Los Angeles or a monsoon in Corvallis and Michael Penix Jr. just always seems to come out on top.
The star Washington signal caller was great in the face of adversity Saturday night as the No.5 Huskies (10-0, 7-0 PAC 12) came away with a 22-20 win over No. 11 Oregon State (8-2,5-2) on a very rainy night at Reser Stadium.
Whenever a big play needed to be made, Penix was there to make it—despite a number of dropped balls due to the torrential downpour. The Heisman hopeful completed 13 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns while getting another score in the rushing game.
