Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesWashington is flying the flag for west coast football.

A Pac-12 team has not won the national championship in the playoff era and the Oregon Ducks in 2014 were the only other Pac-12 final participant.

Washington can send the Pac-12 off with a national title if it follows the same strategy as it had in the Sugar Bowl.

Penix carved apart the Texas Longhorns defense for over 400 passing yards, and he worked well with a quartet of wide receivers, led by likely first-round draft pick Rome Odunze.

Michigan does not have the top-end secondary depth to deal with all four of Washington’s top pass catchers.

If the Huskies score on their first drive, it could be bad news for the Michigan defense. That would mean Penix has not missed a beat from the Sugar Bowl and could throw for a higher yardage total.

Washington’s pass-first offense is the perfect counter to Michigan’s run-heavy unit, and at minimum, it should give us a terrific contrast of styles on Monday night.
