Anchorage’s Edefusan Ulofoshio racked up a career-high 18 tackles and recovered a fumble to lead the University of Washington defense in a 31-26 loss to Stanford in the Pac-12.

The sophomore linebacker recorded 13 solo stops and scooped up a fumble in the fourth quarter and looked to score, racing 39 yards before getting cut down at the 10-yard line.

His 18 tackles were the most tackles by a Huskies player since Ben Burr-Kirven had 20 tackles against Arizona State in 2018, a stretch of 27 games from then the now.

Ulofoshio, of South High fame, came into the game ranked No. 6 in the Pac-12 at 9.7 tackles per game.

His previous career high was 14 tackles, set just last week against Utah.

This was his second fumble recovery of the season. He has also forced one fumble.

Ulofoshio has already matched last year’s tackles total. He has 47 tackles in four games compared to 47 tackles in 13 games in 2019.

He is knocking on the door of 100 for his career, sitting at 96 heading into next week’s game against Oregon.
