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.
Washington football defeated Washington State 31-13 in the 112th Apple Cup Friday in Seattle, its seventh consecutive Apple Cup win. Huskies quarterback Jacob Eason threw for 244 yards, tallying one touchdown through the air and one on the ground; running back Richard Newton also added two touchdowns. Washington's defense put up a season-high five sacks in the effort. Cougars quarterback Anthony Gordon threw for 308 yards as Max Borghi rushed for one touchdown. – Pac-12 Networks
Gordon has already attempted 585 passes this season, which is 138 more than any other Division I FBS quarterback. He is 906 yards ahead of LSU’s Joe Burrow, who has the next-most passing yards with 4,014.
Fortunately, the Apple Cup is still stirring excitement and emotion among both fan bases on the eve of its 112th birthday, because while the men coaching the Cougars and Huskies acknowledge the history and the significance of this rivalry, you usually won’t find them adding ammunition to the late-November feud.
Between preparing your Thanksgiving feasts and calming your Apple Cup nerve – both time-consuming activities this week every year – a handful of you still took the time to tweet in, or E-mail in, questions for our final regular season edition of the Washington State mailbag. For that, I’m thankful.
The keys to a potential victory for Washington State over Washington on Friday at Husky Stadium.
In February 1999, Renard contracted what his parents diagnosed as a moderate flu. Reginald and Yarvelle traded days at home, watching over and taking care of their youngest son until he could recover. But Renard’s symptoms worsened – the color around his eyes became pinker by the hour – and his parents grew more concerned.
Pac-12 Networks' Mike Yam and Yogi Roth get you ready for Friday's Apple Cup matchup in Seattle.

Like every other college program that passed through Lake Stevens High between 2013 and 2015 for a glimpse of Jacob Eason, Washington State marveled at the quarterback whose huge frame was just as impressive as his right arm.
