SEATTLE, WA - NOVEMBER 26: Washington State position Player Name (number) “description of play” “time of game” of the Apple Cup rivalry between the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars on November 26, 2021, at Husky Stadium in Seattle, WA. Jack Ellis/CougCenter

How are we on this glorious day, fellow Coug fans? Our Washington State Cougars absolutely stomped the hapless Washington Huskies 40-13 last night and put up the largest margin of victory ever for a WSU team in an Apple Cup. It’s a great day to be a Coug!

WSU scored all of its touchdowns on the ground and Dean Janikowski was nails on his field goals. The Cougar defense had four takeaways and UW looked like it could lose to Whitworth.

By now you know how the game went down. Let’s look at some leftovers, beginning with the game highlights:

Brian Smith dances on the metaphorical grave of Jimmy Lake

We like them apples

Jayden de Laura may have planted the flag, but football staffer Bailey White had the assist

Please note the time left on the clock.
