While the Cougars haven’t been good for quite some time, the Apple Cup has proven to be a dicey game for the Huskies. You’d think that they’d be able to pad their record, as in most cases in the past decade they’ve been the clearly better team, but history has shown that some truly inferior Washington State teams can win Apple Cups. That wouldn’t be the case this year, and in the tradition of, and in lieu of a Seahawks Twitter recap, here’s an Apple Cup recap, by you, the tweeters.
