3 Keys:

1. Keep everyone healthy.

The worst thing that can happen Saturday is that Washington loses. The next worst, but far more likely thing that can happen is that someone gets injured. Hopefully this can be avoided by the Huskies racing out to an early lead and Sarkisian being able to pull his starters as soon as possible.

2. Get off to a quick start.

This key intertwines with the first one. By getting out to an early lead, Washington will not only have to stress over Idaho State, it will be able to rest its key players and avoid injury. It can’t hurt to practice getting off to quick starts, either. Before blowing things open in the second half, the Huskies have led just 10-3 in each game thus far.

3. Don’t look ahead to next week.

This is what gets FBS teams upset by FCS ones. All too often, talented teams are caught overlooking a team that should be an easy win on their schedule. I’m confident Sark won’t let his players overlook Idaho State, but it’s a concern that has plagued teams in the past.
