Cougs fall to Huskies for 7th straight Apple Cup
SEATTLE, Wash. — A new year, same result, the Washington Huskies continue their dominance over the Washington State Cougars with a 31-13 win in the Apple Cup Friday.
The Cougars took the opening drive right down the field and scored a touchdown to open the scoring to take their first lead of the game. They added a field goal early in the 2nd quarter for a lead of 10-7.

With the win, the Huskies improve to 7-5, the Cougs fall to 6-6. Both teams are expected to be headed to a Bowl game.
