Michael Penix Jr. has 859 passing yards through his first two games this season.

That’s the most by a Washington quarterback through the opening two games in program history. Penix took the record last year — his first in Seattle — with 682 yards through his first two games. Now, he has smashed that record.

It’s looking possible he could shatter a few others in his final season with the Huskies.

On Saturday, in a 43-10 win over Tulsa, Penix completed 28 of his 38 pass attempts for 409 yards and three touchdowns.

Last week, in a 56-19 win over Boise State, Penix threw for 450 yards and a career-high-tying five touchdowns.

The two 400-yard games so far this year give Penix five of the top nine single-game passing performances in Washington history.

Penix is on pace for a 5,000-yard passing season. That would be the first such season in Washington program history. Prior to last season, UW only had one 4,000-yard passing season in program history.

In his first year with the program, Penix set the program record with 4,641 yards.

He’s also on pace to take Jake Browning’s single-season touchdown record (43).

“I would hate to be a defensive coordinator going against Coach (Ryan) Grubb right now,” Penix said after the game, per Inside The Huskies’ Roman Tomashoff.

UW is 2-0 as it prepares to head to Michigan State for its first road game of 2023.
