Washington Post: No Spills at Top, but Plenty of Thrills

Here is the link.

Washington pulled an even more improbable play in its failed upset bid at No. 12 Cal. Backup quarterback Carl Bonnell heaved a 40-yard Hail Mary on the final play of regulation, which deflected off the hands of a Cal linebacker and into the arms of wide receiver Marlon Wood, who dove across the goal line to force overtime. "We thought we had it wrapped up, and then I thought Doug Flutie was out there," Cal linebacker Zack Follett told reporters after the game. But Marshawn Lynch ran for a 22-yard touchdown on the third play of overtime, the Golden Bears' defense held, and Cal escaped with hope to challenge No. 3 Southern California for the Pacific-10 title.
