SEATTLE (AP) -- Keith Price connected on his first eight passes en route to a career-high 315 yards and four touchdowns, and Washington used a blistering start to hold off Hawaii's late rally for a 40-32 win on Saturday afternoon.

Washington (2-0) jumped to a 14-0 lead in fewer than 8 minutes, led 21-0 late in the first quarter, then played counter-punch with the Warriors, who could not overcome the Huskies torrid start.

Price tossed his fourth TD to Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a 14-yarder in the back of the end zone with 10:02 left after Hawaii cut the Huskies lead to 31-26.

Sterling Jackson had two short TD runs for Hawaii (1-1) and Richard Torres returned an interception 99 yards for a score, but the Warriors fell to 1-8 on the road since 1998 against BCS teams.
