Washington 27, USC 0
November 1
Husky Stadium

Washington's defense limited USC to 157 yards of total offense to hand the Trojans their first shutout in seven years, 27-0. The last time an opponent held USC scoreless was the 1990 Husky team (31-0).

UW used a 45-yard field goal by Nick Lentz with 6:27 to play in the first quarter to take the lead. Jabari Issa blocked a punt in second quarter to spark the Husky offense. Brock Huard connected with Fred Coleman for a 35-yard TD pass and Jerome Pathon for a 21-yard scoring play to up UW's lead to 17-0 at the half. Maurice Shaw's seven-yard touchdown run in the third quarter along with another Lentz field goal closed out the scoring for Washington.

The game was costly for the Huskies. Senior tailback Rashaan Shehee suffered a sprained knee in the first quarter that would keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season. Brock Huard also went down with a sprained ankle in the third quarter and missed his next start.

USC's defense limited the Husky running game to 31 yards, but the Huskies completed 19 of 25 passes for 271 yards. Pathon led Washington's offense with 120 yards on eight receptions. It was Pathon's fifth 100-yard receiving day of the season, setting a UW single-season record.

The Husky defense recorded five sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Butkus Award candidate Jason Chorak had three tackles for loss and assisted on one sack. It was the first shutout by a Husky defense since 1993 when UW defeated East Carolina 35-0.

The win gave the Huskies 12 consecutive wins over Pac-10 opponents, the longest such streak in the league.
