97. The Pick

Kenny Wheaton's interception return seals win for Oregon

Oct. 22, 1994: Washington and Oregon have long disliked each other, but the rivalry was wildly lopsided in the Huskies' favor -- at least until Kenny Wheaton went 97 yards for a TD on an interception return, which capped a 31-20 Ducks win over the No. 9 Huskies. The play happened just as the Huskies looked to be driving for a go-ahead score. But with Washington on Oregon's 9-yard line, Wheaton picked Damon Huard and dashed into Ducks history. Oregon had lost five in a row and 17-of-21 to the Huskies, but "The Pick" was the key moment in Oregon's run to its first Rose Bowl in 37 years.
