What a weekend it turned out to be for the Pac-12 schools in the Pacific Northwest. First, Washington State improved to 3-0 after dominating Colorado State. Then at night, UW took on Michigan State in Seattle.

The No. 11 Spartans were ready to make a statement, but so were the Huskies. In the end, UW recorded an impressive win and they're now the No. 18 team in the country.

That's huge for the Huskies. After last year's nightmare, this is just what the team needed. All things are going great thus far for UW head coach Kalen DeBoer. This could be a big year for them.
