The 1936 Washington Huskies football team won the Pacific Coast Conference championship with a 7-2-1 record, finished the season ranked #5 in the country, and had four players who were selected to the All-Pacific Coast first team. The Washington honorees were halfbacks Byron Haines and Jimmie Cain, tackle Chuck Bond, and guard Max Starcevich.
The Santa Clara Broncos were "the only undefeated, untied team in the country" in 1936, were ranked #6 in the final AP Poll, and then defeated the #2-ranked LSU in the 1937 Sugar Bowl. Santa Clara landed two players on one or more of the All-Pacific Coast teams. Fullback Nello Falaschi was a first-team selection by the INS and UP and was later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Guard Dick Bassi was a first-team pick by the AP, INS and UP.
