Oct. 30, 1993
A week after its first loss of the season, UW got back on the surprising path to the Rose Bowl with a 13-10 victory over Michigan. The aftermath is what many remember from that day. Around 70 people were injured, some critically, during a surge to the playing surface from the student sections. The official report on the incident said fencing and blocked aisles "provided no release for those at field level," causing a crush. No one was killed, but non-breathing, pulseless people were initially reported on a field that turned into a triage area. "I think we dodged a bullet on this one," Dr. Bruce Harms, co-director of University Hospital's trauma unit, said the next day.
