“Dante Pettis! TOUCHDOWN WASHINGTON! Are you kidding me? Oh baby!”
Those were the words uttered by Washington IMG Sports Network play-by-play announcer Bob Rondeau calling this key 58-yard punt return for a touchdown by Pettis (wearing jersey number 8) for the University of Washington late in the fourth quarter. It was a score that would give them a 31-24 win over Utah and helped keep them heavily in College Football Playoff contention.
It was Pettis’ fifth career punt return touchdown, a new University of Washington football record.
