2003 ROSE BOWL
 
 
January 1, 2003, Pasadena, Calif. - Oklahoma's vaunted defense stifled Washington State's high-flying passing attack and captured the 89th Rose Bowl Game 34-14 in front of 86,848 fans New Year's Day. The Sooners broke the game open with a pair of touchdowns inside the two-minute mark of the first half. The first came on a 12-yard touchdown pass from Nate Hybl, the game's most valuable player. Antonio Perkins extended OU's lead to 17-0 with a 51-yard punt return just :42 seconds later. Hybl connected on 19 of 29 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns. Sooner running back Quentin Griffin carried the ball 30 times for 144 yards. WSU quarterback Jason Gesser finished his career by completing 17 of 34 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown. Sammy Moore provided the game's final highlight, returning an OU kick 89 yards for a score with just 1:15 remaining. Linebacker Teddy Lehman led the Big XII Champions with six tackles, including two sacks, while free safety Erik Coleman recorded 10 tackles and recovered a fumble for the Cougars.
