The Hurricanes had three quarterbacks _ Morris, Ryan Williams and Gray Crow _ throw TD passes.

NO. 17 WASHINGTON 56, IDAHO ST. 0

SEATTLE (AP) _ Keith Price threw for 213 yards and three touchdowns in less than a half, Deontae Cooper scored his first career touchdown after three major knee surgeries, and Washington routed Idaho State in the Huskies’ final tuneup before the start of Pac-12 play.

Bishop Sankey, the national leader in yards rushing per game, barely broke a sweat against the Bengals (2-1) of the FCS. Sankey saw action on the Huskies’ first three series and scored on a 3-yard TD run in the first quarter. Sankey finished with 77 yards on four carries.

Price played a little more than 1 1/2 quarters, throwing TD passes of 1, 6 and 5 yards and adding a 1-yard TD run as the Huskies (3-0) led 42-0 at halftime. It was the second straight season they overwhelmed a lower division opponent in the first half.

Last year, Washington led Portland State 45-0 at halftime.

NO. 18 NORTHWESTERN 35, MAINE 21

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) _ Linebacker Damien Proby and defensive end Dean Lowry each had an interception return for a touchdown to lead Northwestern over Maine.

Northwestern improved to 4-0 as it wrapped up its non-conference slate, but this was not the consistent, steady performance coach Pat Fitzgerald was looking for heading into Big Ten play. If not for the interception returns, Maine (3-1) could have been in line for an upset down the stretch.

Running back Mike Trumpy and quarterback Kain Colter each had rushing TDs for Northwestern.

Marcus Wasilewski was 25-for-40 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Maine, which had a 379 to 373 edge over the Wildcats in total yards.

Northwestern had posted better than 500 yards of offense in each of its first two games against California and Syracuse.

NO. 19 FLORIDA 31, TENNESSEE 17

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ After starting quarterback Jeff Driskel was lost to a season-ending ankle injury, Tyler Murphy led Florida to five scores in a somewhat ugly game, helping the Gators open Southeastern Conference play with a victory over Tennessee.

Murphy had a 52-yard touchdown throw to Solomon Patton, a swing pass that went the distance, and made several plays with his legs as Florida (2-1, 1-0) won its ninth straight in the series. Murphy’s 7-yard TD scamper in the fourth quarter made it 31-10 and sent fans scrambling for the exits.
