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.
Totally unnecessary late hit by Arizona's Vuna Tuihalamaka, who flattens Washington's James Johnson during the fourth quarter of Saturday night's game in Seattle. The Wildcats led at this point, but eventually paid the price, with the Huskies rallying for a 36-33 victory.
Before he became an undercover agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Jay Dobyns was a standout receiver at Arizona. He was featured on the cover of the team's media guide in 1984 and thought a career in the NFL was his for the taking.
Then he went to the NFL Combine, where his receivers group included Jerry Rice, Andre Reed, Jay Novacek and Al Toon.
"I went in there thinking I was a big thing; that if I could do it in the Pac-10 I could do it anywhere," Dobyns said. "It was an eye-opening experience. That combine was life-changing."
He wasn't drafted and his football dream ended in 1985.
Dobyns decided to enter law enforcement and on his first assignment for the ATF, he was shot in the back at point-blank range.
"It was a pretty wicked experience. Blood was squirting out of my chest like you had your thumb on a garden hose," Dobyns said. "I remember leaning against the car thinking, 'I've been on the job a week and I'm going to die in this dirty trailer park.' ''
