In the wake of the combined 114-0 pounding suffered by UW and WSU Saturday, a number of you asked if the schools had ever before been shut out on the same day.
The answer is yes, though you have go to back a long way to find it.
The last time both teams were shut out on the same day was Nov. 27, 1948, when the Huskies lost at Notre Dame 46-0 and the Cougars lost to Penn State 7-0.
It happened only five times previous to 1946:
--- On Oct. 19, 1946, when UW was beaten at USC 28-0 (that sounds familiar) while the Cougars played a 0-0 tie with Oregon.
--- On Oct. 8, 1938, when the Huskies lost to UCLA 13-0 and the Cougars lost 8-0 to Stanford;
--- On Oct. 12, 1929, when the Huskies lost to USC 48-0 and the Cougars lost 14-0 to Cal;
--- In 1920, on the weekend of Nov. 5-6 when the Huskies lost 3-0 to Stanford and WSU 49-0 to Cal (the Cougar media guide says WSU played on Nov. 6 and UW on Nov. 5 --- not sure if they really did or if one of the guides just has the date wrong).
--- and finally, in 1901, when on the weekend of Oct. 25-26, UW lost to Whitman 10-0 while WSU lost to Idaho 5-0.
