    Coming into the game against UCLA the Huskies of UW were a little worried looking over the respective rosters. Well they shouldn't have been as the EA gods saw fit to give them every break in the book. First break was the snow. It was post-blizzard conditions with a thick cover on the ground. To put it lightly, UCLA's players weren't ready for the flaky white shit.

    UCLA had the ball first and had a good drive going when inside the 30 yard line, Dan Thomas fumbled on an undercut hit by Roy Burnette. The ball was picked up before going out of bounds. A couple of plays later Greg Baker hit HB Stephen Wilson out of the backfield who burned the coverage badly for a 66-yard TD.

    UCLA Countered with a pass to their own speedy halfback once they got into scoring range. He left coverage guy Gary Fields flat footed for the easy score and it was 7-7.

    Henceforth was a comedy of errors for the Bruins as Dan Thomas ended up with three fumbles, all of which were recovered by the Huskies, and a UCLA tight end also fumbled for a total of 4 fumbles, and 4 recoveries by the Huskies. To make matters worse the Bruins threw a couple of interceptions as well. Wes Baker's 11th interception of the season effectively ended things.

    "We got buttfucked in this one," said UCLA coach Bruce80. "Absolutely buttfucked. We had a good game plan and were executing and just got buttfucked."

    Washington's scores included other lucky breaks. Medium-pace WR Tyler Wilson beat a 99-speed corner by 6 yards for an easy catch in the seam and then went 55 yards for a score.

    Laurence Barnes was the beneficiary of a horrible play by UCLA defender Kevin Hall. When Greg Baker got hit in the pocket while throwing he threw somewhat of a duck, but Hall moved forward, tried to bat at it, and never left his feet as the ball went straight to Barnes behind him for an 11-yard score.

    Once UCLA had nearly rage quit, Wilson busted loose for a 74-yard run probably aided by some rage circle/switch dives. The Huskies tacked on a field goal later for the final score.

    Not pretty by UCLA, and not a win we're real proud of. We got the dubya and the Conference Championship which we won't be giving back though. So we got that going for us.

    This is terrible news for the badgers.....we are probably going to get jumped by a 1 loss team.

    only way you get jumped is if polls believe WAshington is better than you.

    IIRC, it was

    UCLA, Wisc, Rutgers, VT, Washington

    UCLA is gone...if I lose, it's Wisc and VT.

    if I win it's Wisc and Rutgers

    unless polls love Washington for taking out the #1 team, I don't see how you get jumped.
