Washington welcomed Montana to Seattle Saturday, and they did not take it easy on their FCS foe. As the final seconds of the first quarter ticked away UW wide receiver and return specialist Dante Pettis fielded a punt and made history.

It was the seventh punt return touchdown of Pettis' career, which broke Deshaun Jackson's Pac-12 record. Pettis only needs one more punt return touchdown to tie the all-time record, currently owned by Texas Tech's Wes Welker and Oklahoma's Antonio Perkins.
The electric return put the Huskies up 21-7 going into the second quarter.
