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.

Washington getting fined for Wazzu rushing their field would require a complete lack of reason or judgment from those making the decision.— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) November 27, 2021
So yeah, expect a statement from the Pac-12 issuing the fine by Monday. https://t.co/fgaZpTMM6a

"I was just so happy. I absolutely hate the Huskies. Every Cougar absolutely hates the Huskies. Purple's the ugliest color in the world. I just know this cup's never going back over here.
"Told the young guys, 'Make sure this cup never comes this way again.'"
