2017 Husky Football: Washington 33, Utah 30

Twenty-two years ago, a much-maligned Husky kicker—who had missed several crucial kicks earlier in the year—nailed a game-winning field goal as time expired to win a late season contest 33-30 at Husky Stadium.

Then it was John Wales.  Tonight?  Tristan Vizcaino found redemption as the Dawgs downed the Utes.

Select photos from the game are below.  See a few more images in the full gallery.
