No. 15 Washington's showdown with No. 5 Stanford came down to the wire on Saturday, and it required some help from the officials to wrap things up.

Facing a fourth-and-10 on the Cardinal's 49-yard line with 1:31 remaining, Huskies quarterback Keith Price scrambled to the right side of the field and found Kevin Smith downfield along the sidelines. Price seemingly connected with Smith just inside the Cardinal 35-yard-line, which would have given Washington a first down facing a 31-28 deficit.

Officials reviewed the play, however, and determined that Smith trapped the ball on the ground. Thus, the catch was ruled an incompletion, and the Huskies turned the ball over to Stanford on downs, ending UW's shot at an upset bid.

Good call? Bad call? You be the judge.
