Washington 28
Oklahoma 17

January 1, 1985 – Orange Bowl Stadium
Huskies Beat Sooners, Finish #2
Washington, the first Pac-10 team to be invited to the Orange Bowl, rallied to beat No. 2 Oklahoma 28-17.
Backup quarterback Hugh Millen came off the bench in relief of Paul Sicuro to lead Washington to a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns. The Huskies had jumped out to a surprising 14-0 lead early when Sicuro connected with Danny Greene on a 29-yard touchdown pass and Jacque Robinson later scored from the one yard line.
Oklahoma cut the lead to 14-7 on Danny Bradley's one-yard run and then tied the game just before halftime when Derrick Shepard caught a Bradley pass at the 47 and raced in.
The Sooners broke the deadlock in the third quarter on a 35-yard Tim Lashar field goal, but with 8:39 to play, Millen tossed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Mark Pattison that gave Washington the 21-17 advantage. Washington then intercepted a Sooner pass to set up its final score.
