Washington’s 37-13 win over Oregon State last Saturday gave the Huskies (7-5, 3-5 Pac-12) their seventh victory and likely ensured the Huskies will have one more game no matter the outcome of Saturday night’s matchup with the Cougars.
Washington coach Chris Petersen had barely sat down Monday when he started getting peppered with questions about coaching in his first Apple Cup
Behind 200 rushing yards from Bishop Sankey and a couple of late interceptions from the defense, Washington overcame a 10-3 halftime deficit to win its 68th Apple Cup Friday, at Husky Stadium.
Cornerback Marcus Peters and his teammates will face their second consecutive major test when they try to corral Washington State’s pass-happy offense on Friday in the Apple Cup. For most of the season, Washington’s secondary was considered one of the top units in the Pac-12, but much of that was based off a strong first five games.
It’s just the first week of March but the Washington Huskies head football coach is already thinking about the last day in August. That’s when Steve Sarkisian’s squad christens a brand spanking new Husky Stadium against Boise State. It also launches the 5th, and arguably the most important season of “Sark’s” tenure. Expectations have never been greater.
Washington State will open next football season with a game at Auburn.
The Huskies watched their lead collapse in Pullman, losing to the Cougars in overtime during the 2012 Apple Cup.
Can’t get to Pullman for the Apple Cup, 2012? Not to worry. Lots of places in Puget Sound are opening their doors and offering food and drink specials so you can come cheer on the Dawgs or the Cougs on Black Friday!
