Jalen McMillan had a busy day on Saturday.

In Washington’s season-opening victory over Boise State, the junior wideout completed a pass, ran for a touchdown, and caught two more touchdowns.

“He’s a special player,” said quarterback Michael Penix Jr. after the game.

Added wideout Rome Odunze: “He does it all, man.”

McMillan got himself going Saturday with a 35-yard catch-and-run on a second-and-6 ball over the middle from Penix. UW made it a point to get him involved early and often.

Before the first half was up, McMillan had six catches and two touchdowns on eight targets.

Then, on the first play of the fourth quarter, McMillan took a Wildcat snap nearly untouched for a 19-yard rushing score.

McMillan just finds a way to get himself open. He split a double on his first touchdown catch

He finds a way to beat defenders once the ball is in his hand.

With Odunze on the other side — Odunze posted 132 yards and a score on seven catches — UW has a fantastic one-two receiving punch.

“I don’t know if there is much more he can do,” said coach Kalen DeBoer after the game. “He threw the double pass — that was a great play they did a good job covering over the top. When you draw that play up you think of it being a touchdown and getting it behind the defense. They connected well and moved the chains. He is an instinctive player to begin with. I couldn’t be more proud of him. He is one of the biggest gym rats on our team. He’s always catching footballs, tennis balls, watching film.

“All that work paid off today because you saw him do a lot of things. The Wildcat look where he scored a touchdown, he had a guy miss in the hole there but executing things and learning from the things that don’t go well in practice and him making sure those things go right during the game. I am proud of him.”
