The Agony of Da Feet

Arizona was seemingly on its way to victory Saturday night, leading Washington, 33-21, with three minutes to play. The Huskies scored to cut it to 33-28, then kicked off to set up this unthinkable play.

Wildcat quarterback Nick Foles’ pass bounces off the foot of receiver Delashaun Dean and into the hands of the Huskies’ Mason Foster, who returns it 37 yards for a touchdown. Washington added a two-point conversion and held off one last charge by Arizona to win, 36-33.

They’re calling it the greatest comeback since the 1975 Apple Cup, when the Huskies rallied from a 27-14 deficit in the final 3:01 to defeat Washington State, 28-27.
