It will be UW’s first look in Pasadena for the reason that 2000-01 season. In truth, the final time the Huskies made the journey down the coast they confronted a Purdue group led by then-freshman quarterback Drew Brees.
Within the low-scoring affair, UW used a lights-out protection to cease the streaking Utes. The Huskies grabbed three interceptions from quarterback Jason Shelley, his first picks since getting the beginning nod a month in the past.
Redshirt sophomore Byron Murphy hauled in two of them, together with this unbelievable pick-6.
BYRON MURPHY, ARE YOU SERIOUS?!
The @UW_Football DB picks the ball off the Utah participant and returns it 66 yards for a landing.

Neither quarterback fared properly with Shelley ending 17-of-27 passing for 137 yards — and the three interceptions. Jake Browning, UW’s fourth-year starter, accomplished 21 of his 33 passes for 188 yards and one decide.
It was UW’s second Pac-12 championship in three years. Now, the Huskies seemingly await the winner of the Massive Ten championship pitting No. 21 Northwestern in opposition to No. 6 Ohio State.
Nonetheless, if Georgia and Oklahoma have been to lose, it is seemingly the Huskies might face an at-large bid reasonably than the Massive Ten winner as Ohio State might get a bid into the School Soccer Playoff with a win over Northwestern.
