Ulofoshio unleashes defensive destruction on OSU in Pac-12 win
Anchorage’s Edefuan Ulofoshio was a one-man wrecking crew for the University of Washington defense against Oregon State.
He recorded nine solo tackles, recovered a fumble and broke up four passes, including three in a row on OSU’s final drive in the final moments of the fourth quarter to ice a 27-21 win in Seattle, Washington.
With 10 tackles, the sophomore linebacker recorded double figures for the third time in his Pac-12 career.
Last year he had 12 tackles against Washington State and 11 against Colorado.
Ulofoshio, of South High fame, single-handedly shut down Oregon State’s passing game on its last-ditch attempt to rally from behind.
Three straight times he knocked down passes – on second down, third down and fourth down.
On the final play, he jumped into the air and the pass deflected off his helmet, which led to an interception that ended the threat, and the game.
This was the first game of the season for Washington and started the Jimmy Lake era.
Last year, Ulofoshio played all 13 games and won the Husky Fever 12th Man of the Year Award.
