Apple Cup Should Be Competitive

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Fans always expect a competitive game in
the Apple Cup, but this year the Washington and Washington State
football teams are especially closely matched.
Both teams have 10 losses. Neither team has a win in the Pac-10.
Both teams rank near the bottom nationally in offensive and
defensive statistics.
Only once in the last 13 meetings has the Apple Cup been decided
by more than 10 points.
The winner may avoid the bottom of the conference standings and
being labeled the worst major college football team in the nation.
