2017 Apple Cup: Washington 41, Washington State 14

It’s been fun spending most of the home season on the sidelines this year (after I missed the first several games last year).  Tonight’s Apple Cup was my final Husky game of the year, and it featured a showdown between #13 WSU and #17 Washington.

Despite the rankings, the Dawgs were heavy favorites entering the game, and they held up their end of the bargain.  In a familiar script, Washington ran the ball effectively against the Cougs while pressuring WSU quarterback Luke Falk and forcing several turnovers.

A selection of game photos are below.  View a few extra images in the full Apple Cup gallery here.
