Washington's Bishop Sankey taking over Las Vegas Bowl

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

What Bishop Sankey does in Vegas stays in Vegas. Boise State better hope so, since they have to play him to open the 2013 season.

The story of the Las Vegas Bowl: Washington running back Bishop Sankey is good. That's not a very long story. But with a quarter to go, Sankey's 223 yards make up about 70 percent of the Huskies' offense. He's averaging 8.8 yards per touch, including a run of 33 and a catch-and-run of 42.

He entered the game ranked fifth in the Pac-12 in rushing (1,234 yards) and sixth in yards from scrimmage (1,409). He's been one of the most consistent dual-threat backs in the country, putting up 153 in Washington's win of the year (over Stanford), cracking 100 in seven games and putting up fewer than 66 only once -- against LSU.

His hard running style surely has NFL types squeezing their clipboards, but he'll be with us for another year at least, as he's only a sophomore.
