A recap of the Week 3 action and inaction …
They canceled the Apple Cup? Man, where was this pandemic when Mike Leach needed it?
From the reunions to the tailgates to the stadium sounds, much of what fans in the state of Washington cherish about the college football experience has already been put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Washington State still doesn’t know what time it will kick off the Nov. 7 season opener against Oregon State, but the Pac-12 Conference announced possible starting times and television slots for both of the Cougars’ Friday games later on in the year.
At some point before the season began, Kyle Smith took a break from designing plays for WSU’s basketball team and put his literary juices to work, penning a short victory poem for the Cougars. The lyrics sounded a little sweeter Sunday afternoon, and it’s no wonder why.
House considers law to allow sports betting at tribal casinos.
WSU now gets what essentially equates to a third bye week before learning its bowl destination, which will be announced next Sunday and perhaps unofficially revealed a day or two before then. We’ll dive into preliminary bowl scenarios in our weekly rewind, rehash what happened in the Apple Cup and cover what was said after it.
Sometime in the second half of Friday’s Apple Cup, a Fox camera zeroed in on a couple in the stands, the female decked out in Husky purple, the male in all Coug attire.
Jimmy Lake didn’t have an opportunity to comment on another dominant effort from his defense in the Apple Cup. The Huskies didn’t make their defensive coordinator available to reporters following a 31-13 win at Husky Stadium. But Lake’s name still found its way into the postgame conversation.
The following is an excerpt from Friday’s Apple Cup postgame news conference in which Washington State coach Mike Leach took exception to a question from Spokesman-Review columnist John Blanchette.
There wasn’t a Shelton, a Qualls, a Vea or a Gaines playing on Washington’s defensive line Friday afternoon. The Huskies still got all the pressure they needed, and then some.
Difference makers from Washington’s 31-13 victory over Washington State in the 112th Apple Cup in Seattle
There have been 112 Apple Cups and, no, Tim Brando hasn’t called them all. It just seems that way.
For the second straight game, Washington State’s Brandon Arconado took an early trip to the injury tent and missed the remainder of the first half after an apparent injury to the same left wrist that forced him to leave the Cougars’ 54-53 win over Oregon State.
Gordon came into the Apple Cup needing just 80 yards to become the 13th QB to pass for 5,000 in a single season. It was a small amount for the nation’s leading passer, averaging 447.2 per game, and Gordon didn’t waste too much time eclipsing 5,000 against UW.
Anthony Gordon completed nine of his first 10 passes and handed off to his roommate, sophomore running back Max Borghi, on the 1-yard line to put the Cougars up 7-0 after just six minutes of Friday’s game at Husky Stadium.
The Washington defense held senior Anthony Gordon to 308 passing yards, which were enough to vault him past 5,000 for the season but not enough for the Washington State offense to get a win, and the Huskies won the Apple Cup for the seventh time in a row, 31-13 on Friday in Seattle.
It does seem that whenever the Cougars end their extended Apple Cup slump, they’ll do it on a down year for the Huskies. This qualifies as one of those. But, given how tough this matchup has been for Leach and the Cougars, it would be better if it didn’t coincide with a down year in Pullman.
