1985 ORANGE BOWL Washington 28, OU 17 - Jan. 1, 1985 at Miami, Fla.


Brigham Young was No. 1 in the polls, but Sooner head coach Barry Switzer had argued that the Sooners should be No. 1 because of a tougher schedule. A win over a fine Husky team would solidify that claim. However, Washington refused to cooperate and turned a 17-14 fourth-quarter deficit into a 28-17 triumph.


To recap the legend: With just over 14 minutes remaining in the 1985 Orange Bowl " the only other time Washington and Oklahoma have met on a football field " the score was tied, 14-14. Then Oklahoma's Tim Lashar kicked what appeared to be a go-ahead 22-yard field goal.
The kick, however, was negated because of an illegal procedure penalty, something the members of the team operating the Schooner " the covered wagon powered by white ponies that is OU's official mascot and races onto the field to celebrate scores " learned a little too late.
Oblivious to the penalty, Schooner driver Rex Harris charged onto the field, earning Oklahoma another penalty " a 15-yarder for unsportsmanlike conduct.
The re-kick from 42 yards away was blocked by Huskies safety Tim Peoples.
Washington went on to score two touchdowns in less than 60 seconds around the five-minute mark and won the game, 28-17."
In fact, the Huskies controlled most of the game, rushing for 192 yards against a Sooners team that entered as the nation's leader in run defense, and holding Oklahoma's vaunted running attack to 162.
