Sweet Victory: Cougars dominate the Huskies bringing the Apple Cup to Pullman for first time since 2012
SEATTLE — The eight year run of dominance is over for the Washington Huskies as the Washington State Cougars snap a seven game losing streak in the Apple Cup with a 40-13 win over their rivals.
Washington State dominated almost all of the first half leading 13-0 midway through the second quarter. Washington did put together a touchdown drive right before half to cut the lead to 13-7 at the break.
More Cougar domination after halftime as they controlled every aspect of the game.
Senior running back Max Borghi had a great game finishing with over 130 rushing yards, 2 touchdowns, and had another long touchdown called back from penalty.
Highly touted Freshman quarterback Sam Huard made his first career start for the Huskies, but the Cougar defense game him a rude welcome as they picked him off four times and took one back for a touchdown.
With the win Washington State improves to 7-5, and 6-3 in conference. If Oregon State beats Oregon in the Civil War game Saturday, WSU would head to the Pac-12 Championship game. If the Ducks win Saturday, WSU will wait to see which Bowl game they are headed to.
