PLAYER OF THE GAME
Sophomore tailback Dwayne Washington rushed for a career-high 148 yards and two touchdowns, including one on a 66-yard run in the first half that put the Huskies ahead 17-7 with 5:16 to go in the second quarter. He also scored on a 1-yard run late in the third quarter that gave UW a 26-21 advantage.
PLAY OF THE GAME
Arizona lined up for a 35-yard field goal attempt late in the first half, but Casey Skowron took the ball for an 18-yard touchdown run that cut Washington’s lead to 17-14 with 1:39 left. It was part of a disastrous sequence for the Huskies that included a lost fumble by quarterback Cyler Miles on the ensuing possession, and another touchdown by the Wildcats with eight seconds left that gave Arizona a 21-17 advantage at halftime.
Washington had just gained a first down and appeared poised to run out the clock and secure a victory when Deontae Cooper fumbled at the Washington 45. Arizona took over with 1:23 left and got in position for a 47-yard field goal, which Skowron converted on the last play to give Arizona the 27-26 win.
