Washington 42, Brigham Young 20
September 6
Cougar Stadium

Washington opened the 1997 season in impressive fashion by handing the 19th-ranked Cougars a 42-20 loss to snap BYU's 12-game winning streak, the longest in the nation at the time.

BYU opened the game with an 80-yard scoring drive, sparked by a 43-yard pass on the Cougars' first play from scrimmage. The Huskies answered with a five-play, 80 yard drive of their own to open the season, capped by a one-yard TD plunge by Maurice Shaw, the first of his two TDs on the day. Washington poured it on before the intermission, scoring two touchdowns in the final three minutes on a run from senior tailback Rashaan Shehee and a 6-yard TD pass from Brock Huard to Fred Coleman. The Huskies came out just as fired up after halftime, scoring touchdowns in their first two possessions of the second half.

That would be more than enough for a Husky defense that held the Cougars' high-powered offense in check. Washington held BYU to only two rushing yards and 306 passing yards. BYU did not record a first down in four drives during the second quarter and managed one first down in the first 12 minutes of the third quarter. Washington's offense was clicking on all cylinders. Shehee finished the day with 171 yards rushing on only 12 carries, had one rushing TD and caught a 23-yard touchdown pass. Shehee's rushing total included runs of 65 and 75 yards (third and fourth longest of his career). Huard completed 18 of 23 passes for 285 yards and no interceptions. His favorite target was senior Jerome Pathon, who pulled in career-highs of seven receptions and 163 yards. Senior flanker Fred Coleman tied his career-high with five catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns.
