                    === Washington destroys Idaho State ===
 
 Seattle,  WA  (Sports Network)  - Keith  Price passed for  213 yards and three
 touchdowns  Saturday  and No. 17  Washington beat FCS  Idaho State 56-0 -- the
 biggest Huskies blowout in more than 31 years.
 
 Things are about to get a lot tougher.
 
 Washington (3-0) won its first three games for the first time since 2001 under
 Rick Neuheisel, but a daunting stretch of Pac-12 opponents looms in the coming
 weeks.
 
 The Huskies open conference play next week vs. Arizona at home before going to
 Stanford, then hosting Oregon and playing at Arizona State.
 
 After  wins over Boise State and Illinois, Saturday's game against the Bengals
 gave Washington's second- and third-stringers an opportunity to see snaps.
 
 Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian said every eligible player played in the game.
 
 "For  a football team,  those moments are really cool," he said. "Our guys are
 probably  as excited about some of the walk-ons playing at the end of the game
 as they were for Bishop Sankey's first touchdown."
 
 Cyler  Miles threw  for 97  yards and  a touchdown  behind Price  and led  all
 players with 89 yards rushing, including a 61-yard run.
 
 Price was 16-of-21 and Miles went 5-of-7.
 
 Idaho  State (2-1) was  coming off wins over Dixie State and Western State and
 will  open  Big Sky play next  Saturday at UC  Davis. The Bengals will play up
 again later this season in a Nov. 16 game at BYU.
 
 Justin Arias was 18-of-39 for 140 yards and two interceptions for Idaho State.
 
 "A  couple of teams in our conference have been butchered by the Pac-12," said
 Idaho  State coach Mike Kramer, "and it was our turn to be on the table today.
 These guys did not disappoint."
 
 The  56-point rout wasn't the most lopsided win by an AP Top 25 team Saturday.
 No. 4 Ohio State beat Florida A&M 76-0 and No. 7 Louisville defeated FIU 72-0.
 
 The  Huskies had a  42-0 lead at halftime. They scored three touchdowns in the
 first quarter despite Jaydon Mickens' fumble on their first possession.
 
 They  got  the ball back on  Arias' fumble and  Sankey scored on a 3-yard run.
 Jesse Callier added an 8-yard touchdown run and Price had a 1-yard score for a
 21-0 Washington lead after the first quarter.
 
 Sankey  only touched  the ball four times, rushing for 77 yards before banging
 his shoulder on the ground. Sarkisian said Sankey was "fine."
 
 "He  kind of landed on his shoulder, and it's not serious, but as the game was
 going  and the  direction it was going I  just didn't feel the need to put him
 back  in," said Sarkisian.  "He had 35 carries last week and four today, which
 is good. I want him fresh and healthy for Pac-12 play."
 
 Price  hit Joshua Perkins  for a 1-yard touchdown early in the second and Sean
 Parker's interception set up Price's 6-yard touchdown pass to Austin Seferian-
 Jenkins.  Price  added a  5-yard  touchdown  throw  to Dwayne  Washington  for
 Washington's 42-0 lead at the break.
 
 Idaho  State's  Brendon Garcia missed a  47-yard field goal try after halftime
 and  Miles threw a  57-yard touchdown pass to John Ross for the only points of
 the third quarter, making it 49-0 Washington.
 
 Cleveland  Wallace's interception  of  Arias set  up  Deontae Cooper's  4-yard
 touchdown run to start the fourth quarter.
 
 Garcia later missed a 38-yard field goal for Idaho State.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 It  was Washington's  largest margin of victory  since a 55-0 win over UTEP on
 Sept. 11,  1982 ... It was the first time Washington scored at least 56 points
 in  a victory since a 58-28 win at Arizona on Oct. 18, 1997. The last time the
 Huskies  scored  that many  points was  the 2011  Alamo Bowl,  a 67-56 loss to
 Baylor  ... Washington's  modern-day record for points is 66 against Oregon in
 1974.
