Jake Browning had to do 500 push-ups for finger point
Washington quarterback Jake Browning has led a revival in Seattle this season, but he is catching some heat for taunting during the Huskies’ last game.
During Washington’s 70-21 thrashing of Oregon, Browning scored on a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter for Washington’s first points of the game. Browning cruised into the end zone untouched and stuck his finger out to point at Oregon’s Jimmie Swain. He got a 15-yard penalty for taunting.

After the game, Browning got on himself for the taunting move, while his teammates supported him for it.

Huskies head coach Chris Petersen did not like the finger point and decided to punish his quarterback for it. The punishment was 500 push-ups. The incredible part is that Browning’s teammates offered to do some to chip in and help out Browning, though the coaches wouldn’t allow it to count towards the quarterback’s total.
