Washington State 41, Washington 35
November 22
Husky Stadium

Washington State used a strong passing attack led by Ryan Leaf and timely defensive presence to capture the Apple Cup for the first time since 1994.

Washington used its longest drive of the season, a 14-play, 71-yard drive in 7:53, to jump on the scoreboard in the first quarter and take a 7-0 lead. After a Washington State punt, UW quarterback Brock Huard threw an interception that led to WSU's Michael Black's eight-yard TD run. Huard went on to throw four more interceptions that led to 17 Cougar points. The Huskies came out in the second half ready for a battle after the 17-7 halftime deficit. Down 24-7, the Dawgs scored twice as senior Fred Coleman caught a 38-yard TD pass from Huard and Tony Parrish picked off a Leaf pass, returning it 32 yards to bring the Huskies within three, 24-21. The Cougars struck back quickly as they marched 80 yards in 2:06, culminating in a 50-yard TD pass from Leaf to Chris Jackson. The Huskies did not give up, scoring 3:43 later on a 17-yard TD pass from Huard to Mike Reed to bring UW within three once again, 31-28.

However, the Cougars controlled the fourth quarter, scoring twice to up the score to 41-28. The Cougars held the ball for 10:04 of the 15-minute quarter. Washington got on the board with nine seconds remaining when senior Jerome Pathon caught a 32-yard TD from Huard to bring the score to 41-35. The Huskies' ensuing onside kick was recovered by the Cougars, thus clinching the game for Washington State and its first Rose Bowl berth in 67 years.

Huard finished the game completing 18 of 36 passes for 283 yards, including four touchdown passes to set the UW single-season and career records for scoring tosses.

It was the first time since 1989 that the Huskies have lost three straight.

Ryan Leaf led the Cougars' offense by throwing for 358 yards, connecting on 22 of 38, setting Pac-10 season records for passing yards and touchdowns.
