Huskies Overcome 'Cats On Late Interception Return, 36-33
Oct. 10, 2009
SEATTLE (AP) - Washington's Mason Foster intercepted a deflected pass off the foot of Arizona's Delashaun Dean and returned the carom 37 yards for a touchdown with 2:37 left, and the Huskies rallied with two touchdowns in the final three minutes to stun the Wildcats 36-33 on Saturday night.
Jake Locker had just pulled Washington within 33-28 on a 25-yard touchdown strike to Kavario Middleton with 2:55 left. On Arizona's first play of the next possession, quarterback Nick Foles tried to throw a quick screen that had worked against the Huskies' defense all night.
The screen was read by Washington's defense, and Foles tried to hit Dean. The throw was low and behind Dean, deflecting off his left foot and into the arms of Foster who ran untouched for the shocking touchdown. Locker then hit Jermaine Kearse on the two-point conversion to give the Huskies a three-point lead.
