The 1982 Rose Bowl was a college football bowl game, played on January 1, 1982. It was the 68th Rose Bowl Game. The Washington Huskies defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes by a score of 28-0. Washington Freshman Jacque Robinson gained 142 yards on 20 carries and set up or scored three of the Huskies' four touchdowns and was named player of the game. Washington quarterback Steve Pelluer was 15 for 29 passing, end Paul Skansi had four big catches and Mark Jerue made 13 tackles as linebacker.

Washington Huskies[edit]

Washington, the defending Pac-10 champion, began the season ranked 15th. After winning their first 3 games to rise to #12, they were knocked off by Arizona State in Seattle, 26-7. They won their next 4 games, heading into crucial matchups with UCLA and USC. UCLA shut out the Huskies 31-0 in Los Angeles but then Washington shut down USC and Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Allen 13-3 in Seattle. Washington then claimed the Pac-10 title by beating rival Washington State, 23-10, while USC knocked UCLA out of 1st place with a 22-21 win in which they blocked a Bruins' last second field goal attempt.

Iowa Hawkeyes[edit]

Iowa started the season by upsetting #7 Nebraska, losing to Iowa State, then upsetting #6 UCLA. The Hawkeyes took over 1st place in the Big 10 with a 9-7 win over Michigan in Ann Arbor, but fell to 3rd place behind Ohio State and Michigan with back to back losses to Minnesota and Illinois. They rose back into a tie for 2nd place when Minnesota upset Ohio State. When Ohio State beat Michigan 14-9 in Ann Arbor, that knocked the Wolverines out of 1st, and left Iowa and Ohio State tied atop the Big 10 standings. Because they did not play each other, Iowa was awarded the Rose Bowl berth since Ohio State had been to the Rose Bowl more recently.
