Apple Cup 2013 score update: Washington leads 3-0 at the end of the 1st quarter

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Washington scored on its opening possession, but it's been a defensive battle since.

The first quarter of the 2013 Apple Cup is in the books and after 15 minutes, the Huskies continue to lead 3-0.

Washington found early success, taking the opening kickoff and moving down the field. The Huskies stalled, but were still able to connect on a 48-yard field goal to take the early lead. WSU drove into Husky territory on its opening possession, but was unable to come away with points.

WSU has found very little success on early downs, forcing Connor Halliday to connect on a long third down if the Cougars are able to stay on the field. The Cougars moved the ball near midfield on their third possession and it appeared Washington got away with obvious pass interference on the third down play.

After some initial issues, the Cougar defense has risen to the challenge. Washington found very little success after its opening possession and the Cougars were able to force the first turnover of the game near the end of the first quarter. Keith Price took a huge hit on a run and fumbled. There was a massive pile up for the ball and Justin Sagote was able to recover the ball and give WSU possession.

The Cougars took over near midfield and will have a prime opportunity to get on the scoreboard.
