Cougs Receiver Knows Apple Cup Atmosphere

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash. -- There is just one game left this year for the Washington State Cougars.

But it's a biggie, the Apple Cup against the Washington Huskies Saturday in Seattle. For Cougar freshman wide receiver Gino Simone, you can't imagine the excitement brewing inside of him. He grew up on the west side watching the Apple Cup and now he will be taking the field. He knows exactly what to expect come Saturday at Husky Stadium.

"Craziness!" said Simone. "I mean, I've grown up around the game and seen it played many times. It's a wild atmosphere. I'm really looking forward to it. It's an exciting opportunity."
