The 2015 Apple Cup is now just days away as the Cougars prepare for their final regular season game before finding out what bowl game they are headed to. WSU's postseason berth is already booked while the Huskies need a win to secure a spot unless they wind up as one of a few possible 5-7 bowl teams.
But none of that matters this week because an announcer once said it's the Apple Cup so you can throw out the records. That cliche doesn't apply to statistical records, however, so let's dig into some Apple Cup Trivia!
Q1: Which WSU players hold the record for most rushing, receiving and passing yards in an Apple Cup?
Q2: Name the two players who are still active in the NFL that were on the UW/WSU rosters the last time the Cougars were ranked in an Apple Cup.
Q3: WSU held Colorado without a touchdown. When was the last time (season and opponent) the Cougars did that against a conference foe prior to last week?

3. Washington State Cougars: Regardless of what happens in the Apple Cup, Luke Falk (who of course we hope is going to be OK) should be the league’s offensive player of the year and Mike Leach should be the coach of the year. An improved defense is as much a reason as the high-flying offense.
