Whoo-Hoo!!!

Aaawwww, yyyessssss…my Big Dawgs did it! They trounced the Buffaloes 41 – 10 in the PAC-12 title game yesterday, and it was certainly worth watching! From the Seattle Times:

After all that, after all his heroics, they got his name wrong.

Taylor Rapp delivered the emphatic exclamation point to another dominant defensive performance for the Washington Huskies, earning the most valuable player award in a 41-10 victory over Colorado in the Pac-12 championship game Friday night. And for that the trophy presenter called him Tyler Rapp. The true-freshman safety from Bellingham quickly corrected the guy, and then held his MVP trophy aloft as teammates cheered. The No. 4 Huskies offered a course correction of their own, sending a message to anyone who might have doubted their credentials.

No way the College Football Playoff committee gets this one wrong. The Huskies (12-1) won their first conference championship since 2000, doing so in a fashion that should offer no debate about their worthiness for their first bid to the College Football Playoff. The CFP committee on Sunday will release its final rankings of the season, and the Huskies bolstered their case with a victory over a No. 9 Colorado team that came into the week holding out hope of a playoff berth of its own.

Rapp closed that door on the Buffaloes (10-3) when he returned an interception 35 yards for a touchdown on the first snap of the second half, extending UW’s lead to 21-7. On Colorado’s next possession, Rapp added his second interception of the game off Colorado’s Sefo Liufau. That set up a UW field goal to push the margin to 17 points, and continued a most impressive week for Rapp, who three days earlier was named the Pac-12’s defensive freshman of the year.

“It felt so good,” said Rapp, standing in the UW end zone with purple and gold confetti at his feet, his MVP trophy in his hands. “I’m still trying to take it all in right now. It’s so surreal. It feels like a dream.”

Safety Ezekiel Turner had UW’s third interception of the second half, and the Huskies held the Buffaloes (10-3) to 163 yards of total offense — and just 45 in the second half.”

I’m ecstatic – I love my Huskies! PURPLE AND GOLD, HEART AND SOUL!!! I think that such an awesome win warrants a bit of music, personally…so, enjoy these five selections – I’m going to do some gaming, in the meantime!
