Washington State College defeated Montana 27-7 to improve to 4-0. Montana's score would be the only touchdown allowed by WSC during its Rose Bowl championship year. Under the direction of first year head coach William "Lone Star" Dietz, WSC defeated Brown 14-0 in the first of the continuous Rose Bowl games and finished with an unblemished 7-0 record.
Nov. 9, 1994
In their NCAA debut, the No. 19 Cougars advanced to the Sweet Sixteen by upsetting No. 11 Wisconsin 3-1 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at Madison, Wisc.
Sophomore forward Jody Payne scored one goal, her first of the season, and had the game-winning assist. The Cougars converted their first three shots as all three goals were scored in the first 15 minutes of the match.
The first goal came less than two minutes in the match as Badger goalkeeper Ursula McKnight mishandled a cross by midfielder Tracy Custer and Payne was there to tap the ball in at the goal line.
Nine minutes later, Payne passed a ball from inside the box to senior co-captain Kristy Olson, who blasted a shot past McKnight from 20 yards out.
The third and final score came from a direct kick from Robyn Smith that Shalli DeWitt was able to redirect with a heel kick.
The win marked WSU's third victory of the season over a top 20 opponent.
