Great Interceptions Highlight Crazy Pac-10 Saturday (Videos)
Total Pro Sports – There were some great plays on Saturday in a weekend filled with crazy football.
Two such plays were spectacular interceptions in Pac-10 matchups. Only one changed the outcome of the game, but both were fun to watch. The first play took place during the Oregon-UCLA game. Oregon, sans those hideous yellow jerseys, controlled the game for most of the day, and in fact their defense and special teams won it with a great 100-yard kickoff return to start the 2nd half followed 13 seconds later by an interception return for a touchdown. It was this play by UCLA player Akeem Ayers that was the highlight for UCLA in their 24-10 loss, however:
The second play was just as crazy, and it actually was on the final play of the game to win it for Washington over Arizona. With the Huskies down 5 and time ticking away in the 4th quarter, they needed a big play to stop the Wildcats from driving down the field. They got it. Quarterback Jake Locker threw a low pass behind his receiver, it bounced off the receiver’s foot and landed smack in the grasp of linebacker Mason Foster. Not only did it take great concentration to make the play, but Mason had the presence of mind to turn around and run the ball back for a touchdown that gave Washington the lead, and eventually the win:
