Fantastic photos, I wanted the win for every player, student, alumni and all the dedicated fans. It was a bitter ending…

Lots of great images. The one with Muhammad deflecting the pass is epic. The look on some of the player’s faces show intense focus. Tough, tough football game.

John, Your photo team produces a number of very interesting pictures that captured many emotions. I positively appreciate the various sight lines in the new stadium; it's a beautiful facility (I remember a very different facility in 1967 when OSU played USC and O.J. Simpson, and the '68 facility was unchanged and very different from this beauty). The Husky defensive backs (DB) seemed to have great length and an appreciation for how to use that length to deflect approaching passes; Muhammad was particulary adept; the Beaver DBs were not as skilled, and seemed a second late in acquiring /closing with the Husky receivers. However, the Husky DBs were often trying to push the OSU receivers out of bounds as they ran along the boundary; if the officials/back judge had called that as PI, we would not have regularly seen that problem. Penix has an incredible touch on many of his passes; Penix appeared to throw one pass away, and a receiver caught it in-bounds - WOW! The coaches and players all represented their schools very well, but I was disappointed with the outcome. So, what is the CW's outcome on the opponents in the PAC-12 Championship game? UW will be there regardless of the Apple Cup outcome;. What about Ducks, Beavers, and Wildcats? Thank you. This has been a great article. I remain VR, J Horvath

Such a game of "What if's". Sumthin' to watch Martinez, isn't it?

These are great photos, Serena. Even the one with Odunze “taunting” the crowd—can’t blame him though as it’s just part of the game now. Heartbroken but proud of the team. As you said John, they are for real!
