Why did Washington State get the ball on the 25?

I thought that I knew the rules of college overtime. But I guess not. First play of overtime in the Apple Cup, the Washington QB in fighting a sack and throws a horrible pass, intercepted by the State lineman, and run back 67 yards to the other five. So Washington State gets the ball, but they spot it at the 25. So... show more I thought that I knew the rules of college overtime. But I guess not.
