The disappointing finish overshadowed a stellar final 34 minutes by the Cougar offense.
A look at the stat sheet told an interesting tale. The Cougars piled more first downs and more passing yards than the Huskies, while time of possesion was about even.
But then there's this one: The Huskies racked up 315 net rushing yards to the Cougars' 110. Chris Polk had a whopping 284 of those hashes, scoring two TDs and averaging nearly 10 yards per carry.
At game's end, that truly was the difference. Every time the Cougars looked to have seized the momentum, the Dawg ground attack answered with a long run.
CF.C will be back with full coverage later.
