Washington runs over UCLA, 24-7

SEATTLE » Jake Locker scored on a 3-yard run in the first half, and Quinton Richardson returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown with 6:22 left to help Washington keep its bowl hopes alive with a 24-7 win over UCLA.

With Locker trying to protect a cracked rib, the Huskies (4-6, 3-4 Pac-10) turned to the combo of running back Chris Polk and freshman Jesse Callier. Polk carried 25 times for a career-high 138 yards and capped the second-best night of his career with a 2-yard TD plunge with 4:24 left.

Callier added 107 yards as the Huskies ran for a season-high 253 yards against the Bruins (4-6, 2-5).

Greg McElroy completed 12 of 13 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns and the Crimson Tide (9-2) routed the Panthers (6-5).

The game against a Football Championship Subdivision team competing in its first year of college football was predictably little more than a warmup for next week’s showdown with No. 2 Auburn. Georgia State is led by former Tide coach Bill Curry.

Mark Ingram ran for 86 yards and a touchdown and Julio Jones caught seven passes for 86 yards and two scores.

Asher Clark ran for 82 yards, and Jonathan Warzeka had a 54-yard touchdown run and finished with 64 yards rushing and 46 yards receiving.
