Pressure, and injuries, build for WSU


For a game that features one team playing out the string (UW) and another limping – literally – to the finish (WSU), this Apple Cup has a lot of interesting subplots.

There's the pressure under which the Cougars are now. As Glenn Kasses writes, three weeks ago all the Cougs needed to do to ensure a bowl game was win one of their final three games. All they need to do two weeks late is … the same thing.

And if that's not hard enough – winning a pressure-packed Apple Cup is hard without any other baggage – there are more injuries to worry about, including a broken wrist suffered by linebacker Scott Davis.
