Merry Christmas from CougCenter!

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

Good morning Coug fans, and Merry Christmas! I’m sure all of you are smiling at your WSU Christmas Tree ornament today, and we won’t waste your time so you can get back to your family and trying to keep track of the instructions for all the stuff you need to put together.

I figured I’d look back on a major WSU-related event in connection to Christmas Day, and that list starts and ends with the 1988 Aloha Bowl. Mark looked back at this game this spring, and he has the details of the actual game. Spoiler alert: WSU won the battle of the Cougars and the game ended in a brief fight. Fun times!

Watch it here:

Let’s hope this upcoming Sun Bowl has a similar outcome, sans fight.

Merry Christmas everyone!
