12 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
The 1991 Washington Huskies Football team entered Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium expecting to dictate their style of play over the #7 California Golden Bears.
In a street fight of a game, matching a pair of unbeaten teams, third-ranked Washington held off seventh-ranked California, 24-17.
Washington took a 17-10 lead just before halftime on a nine-yard run by Jay Berry, ending a drive that was aided by a late hit penalty.
With the game on the line, Husky RB Beno Bryant broke loose for a 65-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter and gave the Huskies the lead. He would finish with 99 yards on 12 carries, despite battling a cold.
The game went down to the very last play and Huskies cornerback Walter Bailey tipped a Cal pass away, finally ending the game.
It was the Huskies closest game of their National Championship season. “They were good, and they played us great,” Washington head coach Don James said.
