The Washington State Cougars appeared dead to rights after going down 28-10, but the Cougars have come back with back-to-back touchdown drives and now trail 28-25.
The drive started after defensive lineman Steven Hoffart broke through the Husky offensive line and stripped Husky quarterback Keith Price. Washington State recovered at the Washington 47-yardline. The drive looked to get off to a very shaky start as Jeff Tuel scrambled around and appeared to be sacked for a huge loss, but Tuel kept his balance and completed a pass to Isiah Myers for a 29-yard gain.
After another pass interference call on Husky corner Desmond Trufant, Carl Winston scored from one yard out. The touchdown was Winston's third of the game. Trailing by five, the Cougars attempted a two-point conversion. Tuel's pass fell incomplete but Washington was again flagged for a penalty. On the next attempt, Tuel hit freshman Brett Bartolone to make it a three point game.
Many wrote the Cougars off after they went down 18, but with 7:40 to go, the 2012 Apple Cup turned into one heck of a game.
