Huskies top Cougars for 7th straight Apple Cup victory

399

Washington intercepted two passes and dominated Washington State in the Apple Cup with a 31-13 victory Friday at Husky Stadium. Washington’s Jacob Eason threw for a touchdown and ran for another as the Huskies beat the Cougars for the 7th straight time.

It was Washington’s defense that made the difference, holding Anthony Gordon to 308-yards and a 5-yard average per completion, his lowest of the season.

WSU raced out to an early 7-0 lead on its opening drive of the game, capped off by a Max Borghi 1-yard touchdown run. But it was all Washington after that as the Huskies scored three touchdowns on the ground.

Washington improved to 7-5 with the victory while Washington State finished the regular season 6-6. Both teams are expected to receive an invitation for a post-season bowl game.
