After a scoreless first quarter, a 7–7 tie in the second, and 13–7 Husky advantage at halftime, the 1992 game became the most lopsided contest between two top-5 teams in Rose Bowl history. Trailing 34–7, a late Michigan touchdown against Husky reserves closed the gap in the final score to 20 points. With a minute remaining and the third-string quarterback leading the offense, Washington opted to run out the clock from the Michigan five-yard line, rather than run up the score.
