Washington wins by a foot

October 13, 2009 | 11:54 am

Halfway through his first season, former USC assistant Steve Sarkisian has his Washington Huskies playing some exciting football.

Saturday night's 36-33 win over Arizona was the latest example. While most of the country was in bed, Washington put together an incomprehensible rally highlighted by the most unlikely of plays. Mason Foster caught an interception that deflected off the foot of Arizona's Delashaun Dean and returned it 37 yards for the winning touchdown with 2:37 left.

“When you play hard and you do things right, you catch breaks,” Sarkisian told the Associated Press. “That's how breaks occur, when the other team makes their mistakes, you're there to capitalize on them. You're not out of position. I thought that's what showed up in this game.”

However, Arizona fans think they were robbed. They say the ball hit the ground as well as Dean's foot. Watch the video and judge for yourself, then leave a comment letting the world, and Arizona fans, know what you think.
