   The Washington Huskies slept through the first three periods of their Pac 10 Conference win against the University of California Bears, but quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo's 250 yards were enough to not only win the game, but also to move him into first place in all-time career total offense yards for the Huskies.
   At this point in his last season for Washington, Tuiasosopo has 6034 total yards with five games yet to be played, compared to Damon Huard's 5813 yards at the end of his senior season.
   After three quarters filled with fumbles and penalties, the Huskies, under the leadership of Tuiasosopo, scored 23 unanswered points (the most in recent Husky history) in the fourth quarter to win 36-24.
