Seattle, WA (December, 1, 201)- The Washington Huskies are going to the Rose Bowl after defeating Utah in the Pac 12 championship 10-3.
The Huskies leaned heavily on their defense when their offense could not get anything productive going down the field. Utah’s QB Jason Shelley threw a crucial interception when Utah was driving for a field goal. Shelley threw a ball that was tough for his receiver to catch and it bounced off the receiver’s ankles into Byron Murphy hands for a “pick” six.
That play won the game for the Huskies, while Utah’s players were in disbelief with the game-changing mistake. Murphy was named MVP after the game. “I made sure I took it,” Murphy said. “Going in, we knew as a defense we had to come to play. This whole week of practice, the defense has been going hard in practice, knowing (Utah) was going to come to play. The defense had to play better throughout this whole game.”
Myles Bryant praised Murphy and this is what he said about Murphy. “I think he proved to you guys that he’s the best corner in America. He just does it every week. He was able to put points on the board for us. He ended up getting a late pick and a late (pass breakup) to seal the game.”
After it was all said and done, the Huskies defined adversity and now will appear in the Rose Bowl. They will find out, who they will play on Sunday.
