Michael Penix Jr. delivered another heroic performance for Washington, rallying the Huskies with a game-winning drive against Washington State.

Though Penix did not have his most efficient performance in the Apple Cup, he came through with some big plays late on the final drive. In fact, head coach Kalen DeBoer credited Penix with the decision to pitch the ball to Rome Odunze on a 4th-and-1 option play from deep inside their own territory.

That conversion sparked what would become a 12-play, 65-yard drive to set up a game-winning field goal try with 5 seconds left in regulation. However, Penix was unable to watch that game-winning try.

Instead, the star QB buried his head on the sidelines and waited to find out the outcome via the roar of the crowd. The good news is Grady Gross delivered with his 42-yard kick to send Washington to a 24-21 win.

Immediately following the game, Penix was seen battling his emotions after a wild ride to the finish line in the Apple Cup. He finished the game 18-for-33 for 204 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception and helped guide the Huskies to a 12-0 record and into the Pac-12 title game.
