Alamo Bowl 2011: Washington Defense Gets Shot At Robert Griffin III

It's been a rough year for the Washington Huskies defense. It's been a great year for the Baylor Bears offense and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. The former will get a chance to redeem themselves against the latter in the 2011 Alamo Bowl.

The Husky defense relishes the opportunity. In fact, Washington linebacker Cort Dennison was actually pulling for Griffin III to win the Heisman Trophy while watching the ceremony (Via Seattle PI).

Careful what you wish for, Cort. The Huskies D gave up more than 425 yards and 33.3 points per game.

Meanwhile, the Huskies are also counting a veteran group of bang-up offensive lineman to hold their own on the other side against the Bears' D.
