Washington pads lead with wacky touchdown pass

  Washington was feeling good after an electric third quarter capped off by an improbably touchdown grab.

When you're hot, you're hot, and Washington was just about bursting through the thermometer in the third quarter of the Pac-12 Championship Game against Colorado.

The Huskies' modest 14-7 halftime advantage exploded within minutes of the third quarter getting underway, with back-to-back interceptions and 17 unanswered points.

The final seven of that total came on a play that could only possibly work when things are going as well for you as they were for Washington.

Feeling some major pressure, Huskie quarterback Jake Browning lobbed a pass toward John Ross III that looked ticketed for the sideline. However, it somehow found its way to Ross' hands (or rather, hand) while the Colorado cornerback, who would have had a chance at a pick-six with a better jump, was instead caught between, allowing Ross to waltz into the end zone for a 19-yard score.

A Pac-12 championship could very well mean a College Football Playoff spot for Washington, and with plays like that going its way, it has to be feeling good.
