Adam Jude of the Seattle Times has an in-depth look at how the Huskies earned their bid to Omaha, which includes a wild dogpile following the game-winning hit from Kaiser Weiss.

From the Seattle Times:
At least 20 players raced from the dugout, from their bases, from the bullpen to join the dogpile. One considerate teammate, backup catcher Michael Petrie, stopped to take off his cleats just before jumping onto the top of the pile.
Willie MacIver was head-butted in the face by teammate Nick Kahle as they dived simultaneously into the pile. MacIver is sporting a baseball-size, raspberry-colored scrape on his right cheek this week.
“Worth it,” he said.
