Moos, a former Oregon athletic director was present for the game.
Aliotti made disparaging comments in the post-game media conference in which he derided Leach for continuing to pass in a game that had long been decided and against Oregon's third and fourth string players on defense. Saying the move was "low class" Aliotti accused Leach of padding statistics.
Washington State had been trailing Oregon by 31 points (55-24) when the Ducks pulled all of the starters from the offense and most of the defense. After corner back Terrance Mitchell picked off a Connor Halliday pass and returned it 51 yards for a touchdown and subsequent point after, the Ducks made wholesale substitutions on defense as they had done with the offensive unit.
WSU continued to play its starting unit and scored two touchdowns, both on passing plays with the last score coming with just 11 seconds left on the game clock.
