43 days to football: Which WSU game is your favorite to re-watch?

New, comments

When it comes to re-living WSU history, which is your go-to game?

WSU Athletic Communications

If you have Pac-12 Network, there is a good chance you've seen the 2012 Apple Cup at least a couple times. It aired again on Thursday in Football in 60 fashion, but has re-aired in some form seemingly a dozen times this offseason. I know I've re-watched parts of it on multiple occasions and while it's a fun game to watch, it's not my all-time favorite.

Choosing a favorite WSU game to re-watch can be tricky. There are at least a few obvious choices -- the Holiday Bowl victory and the upset of No. 1 UCLA immediately come to mind -- but your choice will likely depend on your time at WSU. I had no ties to the Cougars when they beat UCLA in 1998 or Texas in 2003 and while they are great parts of WSU's history, I don't have the memories of them that make re-watching the game as enjoyable.

Instead, if I was going to re-watch a WSU game, it would be the 2007 Apple Cup. I was a student at the time and was stuck watching the game in a bar full of Huskies. The back-and-forth contest probably took years off my life, but I could watch the final drive a million times and still enjoy it.

Even five years later, my reaction when Brandon Gibson hauls in that touchdown still goes something like this.
