2013 Apple Cup pregame links

WSU Athletic Communications

Welcome to the 2013 Apple Cup.

This is it folks, this is what it's all about. One game, there is no tomorrow. This is for the whole megillah, for the whole ball of wax, for the whole kit and caboodle, for the whole enchilada, for the whole shooting match. This is for all the marbles. The 2013 Apple Cup. The losers go home a loser, the winner moves on to fight hunger.

The winner of the Apple Cup isn't guaranteed a spot in the Kraft Fight Hunger bowl, but it wouldn't be a surprise if that is where they land. For WSU, that could mean securing a Pac-12 bowl bid instead of having to rely on Bill Moos to sell the program.

I don't know about you, but a 7-5 regular season and a guaranteed bowl game sounds pretty good to me. Let's get it done.

It shouldn’t be all that surprising that in the wake of the Washington Huskies’ 69-27 pasting of Oregon State last week, several players said they already were thinking about Friday’s game against Washington State. And last year’s game against Washington State.

So here come the Cougars to Seattle, either to temper what has been a pretty productive football season at Washington State, or to visit all sorts of hell on the Washington program for the second straight year.
