FSN Classics Begins Series on '91 Huskies
Oct. 2, 2006
SEATTLE - Beginning October 3rd, Husky fans across the region will have the opportunity to re-live the program's most memorable season when FSN Northwest begins its FSN Classics series celebrating the 1991 Championship team. Every Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. throughout October, the network will air an unforgettable game from that special season.
The network's five-game schedule for FSN Classics: The '91 Huskies is as follows:
10/3 -- THE HUSKIES PASS THE DUCKS TEST
Mario Bailey's 29-yard touchdown catch helped lead the Huskies to a 29-7 victory.
10/10 -- A 14-3 WIN OVER THE TROJANS
The Huskies remain undefeated by beating the Trojans for the first time in 11 years behind Beno Bryant's career-high 158 rushing yards.
10/17 -- UW GETS BY CAL, 24-17
Beno Bryant ran for a 65-yard touchdown to avoid the upset in this see-saw game down south that proved to be the Huskies' closest call of the season.
10/24 -- SETTING THE TONE IN THE SEASON OPENER
The Huskies established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in their first game with a 42-7 win over Stanford in which Washington forced 6 turnovers and knocked out the Cardinal's starting QB.
10/31 -- THE DEVILS NEVER GET CLOSE
Washington scores two touchdowns in the first 6:05 of this 44-16 drubbing of Arizona State.
The series on the '91 Huskies team compliments the network's Thursday night lineup of FSN Classics also at 7:30 p.m. featuring all of the regional network's collegiate partners, including the Huskies, Washington State Cougars and Oregon State Beavers. Not so coincidentally, this week's Thursday night game also features the Huskies in what has become widely known as the 'All I saw was purple' game, 1990's 31-0 rout by Washington over the USC Trojans.
The remaining Thursday night lineup for FSN Classics includes:
10/5 -- 1990 Washington vs. USC
This 31-0 rout over the fifth-ranked Trojans will forever be known as the 'All I saw was purple' game.
10/12 -- 1998 Washington vs. Oregon State
Beavers QB Jonathan Smith led a wild fourth-quarter comeback that was stopped short with :00 on the clock to seal the win for the Huskies.
11/2 -- 1991 Washington vs. Oregon
Mario Bailey's 29-yard touchdown catch helped lead the Huskies to a 29-7 victory to remain undefeated.
11/16 -- 2002 Apple Cup: Huskies win in Triple Overtime
Arguably the most dramatic game played between the state rivals a 49-yard field goal in triple overtime was the difference.
