Breaking down the 3rd longest play in UA history

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It’s the 3rd longest play in Arizona Wildcats history.

Brandon Dawkins first touchdown pass of his college career, a sideline curl route that Trey Griffey turned into a 95-yard touchdown in the Wildcats 2015 loss to rival Arizona State.

What was impressive about it was not only Dawkins ability to stand in the pocket and make a perfect throw under pressure, but the skill Griffey showed in the open field to navigate his way through a flurry of defenders all the way to the end zone.

Only Jason Johnson’s 99-yard strike to Brandon Marshall in UA’s 2001 win over Idaho and Trung Candidate’s 96-yard scamper in a 1997 victory over San Diego State have gone for longer.

If only the Cats had won the game. Then Griffey’s play would be the stuff of legends in the Territorial Cup series

Our David Kelly caught up with Dawkins, Griffey and wide receiver Nate Phillips to get a break down on how the play came together.
