A berth in the Rose Bowl was on the line as 7th-ranked Cal hosted No. 3 Washington in a nationally televised showdown of undefeated teams. 74,500 fans, the largest crowd at Memorial Stadium for a game other than Stanford, USC, or UCLA in 44 years, would witness a classic. The Huskies, who had outscored their opponents 236-31, were 14-point favorites.
Cal scored first when a safety blitz left Sean Dawkins open for a 59 yard touchdown. Washington quickly tied it on Billie Joe Hobert¹s 35 yard strike to Mario Bailey. The Huskies led 17-10 at halftime.
At the end of the 3rd quarter, the Bears burned another Washington blitz as Lindsey Chapman galloped 59 yards through the secondary. Cornerback Dana Hall nearly caught the Cal running back, but Chapman dove into the endzone for the tying score, electrifying the crowd.
Washington struck back, reclaiming the lead on Beno Bryant¹s 65 yard run. Cal had one last chance when the Huskies missed a field goal with 55 seconds left. Trailing 24-17, and with no timeouts, the Cal offense drove to the Washington 23 yard line.
On the final play, Pawlawski lofted a pass to Brian Treggs at the goal-line, but cornerback Walter Bailey managed to tip the ball away to end the game. As they ambled off the field, both teams received a standing ovation from the near-capacity crowd.
