Washington Huskies senior wide receiver Dante Pettis caught five receptions for 92 yards and three touchdowns. In addition, he also returned a punt for a touchdown in the team’s 48-16 win over the Fresno State Bulldogs on Saturday.

Pettis returned his eighth punt return for a touchdown in his career. He now ties Wes Welker and Antonio Perkins for the most returns in NCAA history.

It’s also the third straight game that Pettis has had a punt return for a touchdown. He had a pretty full day, including a 36-yard pass to freshman Hunter Bryant.

He’s one of the wide receivers in the country. Yet, he is one of the most underrated receivers in the country, as well.

Since Pettis is on a hot streak with three returns in the past three games, it would not be surprising if Pettis is about to set the new record next week. The Huskies face the Colorado Buffaloes on Sept. 23 at 10 pm on FS1.
