1 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
A week after ending Miami’s 13-game winning streak, #3 Michigan was booed by their fans before halftime as they went into the locker room down 10-3.
”We’re going to do something with this squad. It’s going to be a wonderful week of practice, I’ll tell you. We were an embarrassment to Michigan football. An embarrassment. We have no excuses. Absolutely none,” Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler said after the game.
Defensively, the Huskies played the “bully” and dominated the game by intercepting Michigan quarterback Jim Harbaugh three times.
After their impressive win, the Huskies earned a spot in the top-ten AP (Associated Press) poll. Washington would go on to win 9 straight games, with being ranked #1 for three of those victories.
”Not many teams come in here and win,” said Washington head coach Don James, who was an assistant at Michigan in 1966 and 1967. ”Psychologically it was the best time to play them. They just beat the No. 1 team and I’d hate to play them next week.”
