Washington Huskies

In the 2000 season, the Huskies shared the Pacific Ten Conference title with Oregon and Oregon State. Washington had given Oregon State their only defeat of the year 33-30. Oregon gave Washington their only defeat of the year 23-16. Oregon State beat Oregon in the 2000 Civil War game 23-13. Ultimately, it was a 23-37 loss at Wisconsin by Oregon earlier in the season that decided the Rose Bowl representative. With two losses, by the multiple team tie rules Oregon was out of the comparison. This left Oregon State and Washington, and the Huskies won the head to head matchup with the Beavers. Washington, Oregon State and Oregon were ranked 4th, 5th, and 9th respectively in the final regular season AP football poll.

Purdue Boilermakers

The Big Ten champion Purdue Boilermakers, were led by quarterback Drew Brees. They did not have a particularly auspicious start, winning against Central Michigan and Kent before losing at Notre Dame. They defeated Minnesota, but then lost at Penn State. The Boilermakers made surprising wins in October starting with Michigan, then at Northwestern, at Wisconsin and finishing with Ohio State. A loss at Michigan State set them back, but a win over Indiana and losses by Michigan and Ohio State left them in a three way tie with Northwestern and Michigan. Purdue got the Rose Bowl invitation by virtue of the head to head victories over Northwestern and Michigan.
