Jan 1, 2024

On the first day of the new year 1/1/2024 was played the semifinals championship which is called the sugar bowl between Washington state (Huskies) and Texas Washington won 37-31 victory over Texas and spot in national title game. Penix passed for 430 yards and two touchdowns, and the Huskies held off Texas 37-31 in the Sugar Bowl on Monday night to advance to the College Football Playoff title game, earning both the sixth-year quarterback with two surgically repaired knees and the beleaguered Pac-12 a chance to go out a champion. The second-ranked Huskies (14-0) will face Michigan next Monday night in Houston with a 21-game winning streak, looking for their first national championship since 1991 and the Pac-12’s first since Southern California in 2004. But first,

the final season of the four-team playoff before expansion to 12 in 2024 comes down to a Pac-12-Big Ten matchup, just like the first when Ohio State beat Oregon. “Huskie Nation stand up,” Penix told the UW crowd in the postgame trophy ceremony. “We are going’ to the natty!” No. 3 Texas (12-2) had four shots at the endzone after getting to the Washington 12 with 15 seconds left, but Quinn Ewers missed on the last three passes. The final throw was a fade to Adonai Mitchell that was knocked away by Washington’s Elijah Jackson. Washington added two field goals by Grady Gross to take a 34-21 lead early in the fourth quarter. Holding the Huskies to field goals kept Texas in the game, and when Ewers found Mitchell, the Georgia transfer with two national titles, for a 1-yard score with 7:23 left, it was a one-possession game. That is the summary of the game. Hard win for huskies and looking for the game against Michigan the final. Way To Fight Huskies !
