Washington Huskies Remains Unbeaten With Last-Second 24-21 Win Against Washington State

Fourth No. In dramatic fashion, Washington concluded an undefeated regular season.

Grady Gross’s last-second 42-yard field goal in the final Pac-12 Apple Cup game helped the Huskies defeat rival Washington State 24-21, advance to the Pac-12 title game with a perfect 12-0 record, and secure their spot in the College Football Playoffs.

Gross’s extremely clutch kick won the game, but Kalen DeBoer, the head coach of Washington, will be remembered more for his bold play selection. With 1:11 remaining in the game and the score tied at 21, the Huskies had a fourth-and-1 at their own 29-yard line.

Originally, DeBoer attempted to draw the Cougars offside. When that failed, he called a misdirection play and sent Michael Penix Jr. and the offense back onto the field.

Heisman Trophy front-runner Penix staged a handoff to Dillon Johnson before executing a reverse pass to standout receiver Rome Odunze. Despite their heroic efforts throughout the afternoon, Washington State’s defense was unable to stop Odunze on this particular play.

With all of his strength, Odunze took off after receiving the ball and went 23 yards to reach midfield.

A roughing-the-passer penalty and a couple of short gains later in the drive moved the Huskies into Gross’s coverage area. Penix had a couple close calls for interceptions, and then Washington State had a sack, so the field goal attempt would have to come from farther than forty yards.

For the second time in program history, Gross made a field goal to put the Huskies up 12-0. Prior to this, he had missed three of his four attempts.

A setback would have dealt a serious blow to Washington’s chances of making the CFP. Now, as one of the few unbeaten teams in the nation, the Huskies will take on Oregon in the Pac-12 championship game the following weekend.

On October 14, Oregon was defeated 36–33 by Washington. The Ducks’ lone defeat of the year came from that game, and now they will be seeking retribution in a game that could ultimately determine a CFP berth next weekend in Las Vegas.
