5 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
The number 5 signifies #5 himself, former Husky Legend/Wide Receiver Mario Bailey‘s touchdown Heisman pose during the 1991 season,
in the 1992 Rose Bowl, The #2 Washington Huskies (11-0) faced the #4 Michigan Wolverines (10-1) to keep their National Championship chase intact.
Towards the end of the game, Mario Bailey caught a 38-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Mark Brunell and then struck the Heisman pose afterwards.
The celebration was a mock attempt at Wolverines wide receiver Desmond Howard. He won the Heisman Trophy even though Bailey finished with the better season statistically.
