HOT COUGAR ACTION: Great Moments in Apple Cup History

To get in the Apple Cup week spirit, the WSU Athletic department is posting a great moment in Apple Cup history every day this week. They started with the 2008 Apple Cup, but to much dismay, the video does not include jumping Paul Wulff.

I assume they will post at least four more videos this week, which got me to thinking. What other moments will make the cut? Bledsoe to Bobo in the 1992 AC is a lock. Chris Jackson's TD catch in 1997 has a good shot to make it as does Brandon Gibson's game winning touchdown catch in 2007. Trandon Harvey's touchdown in 2005 is one of my personal favorites. 

Other contenders?

Then there is the conference leader at Washington State – sophomore Marquess Wilson – who belongs in that elite-performer class even if he looks like a pogo stick in comparison. Wilson is 6-3, 181. His frame is spindly, much like former Wisconsin star Al Toon. He gets by with bounce and burst, not brawn.

The latest referendum on Paul Wulff happened the other day in the snow and cold of Pullman in front of a crowd so small, it was better for Washington State that it was seen only on a backwater cable outlet.

First Look: Washington State vs. Washington - - Nov. 21, 2011

After falling inches short on their last drive of regulation, the Cougars saw their bowl hopes disappear in overtime last week. So they must regroup. There is no better game for that than the Apple Cup. But the usual rivalry buzz that surrounds Husky Stadium will not be heard this year, as Washington has already closed the venerable facility for a facelift. The game is down I-5 at CenturyLink, a place well known to the Cougars and their fans. How that affects Saturday’s game will be interesting to see. A win would give the younger WSU players a taste of success in this rivalry, after two consecutive losses to the Huskies.
