CHICAGO (AP) - Keith Price threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, Bishop Sankey ran for a career-high 208 yards and No. 19 Washington beat Illinois 34-24 at Soldier Field on Saturday.

Josh Shirley added four sacks, and the Huskies came out on top after dropping 7 of 9 away from home. They hadn't won on the road outside the Pac-12 since beating Syracuse in 2007.

Washington (2-0) had a tougher time in this one after keeping high-powered Boise State without a touchdown in a 38-6 win two weeks ago.

The Huskies built a 21-point lead in the third quarter and hung on, sending Illinois (2-1) to its sixth straight loss against ranked opponents.

The Illini cut it to 31-24 on Aaron Bailey's 10-yard run with 9:10 remaining, but Washington's Travis Coons kicked a 32-yard field goal with 4:44 left. Gregory Ducre then picked off a deep pass by Nathan Scheelhaase, sealing the win.
