Huskies surprise Cougars - in more than one way

APPLE CUP

Three weeks ago, the Cougars had such high expectations.

Sporting a 6-3 record and a national ranking, a postseason bowl game was so tantalizing close. All they had to do in the season’s final weeks was reach out and grab it.

It was something they expected to do against Arizona at home. They didn’t.

It was something they expected to do against Arizona State on the road. They didn’t.

It was something they finally expected to do in the Apple Cup, an Apple Cup against a Husky team coming in with a six-game losing streak, including a season-ruining 20-3 loss last Saturday to then-winless Stanford.

It was all there. All they had to do was reach out and grab it.
