Apple Cup week heats up


A couple of Apple Cup notes inspired by UW tight end Kavario Middleton, whose comments yesterday about Washington scoring 50 this weekend can be seen here. The most points the Huskies have scored in an Apple Cup game is 56 in 1991 (they scored 55 the year before). The last time they scored 50 came in 2000, when they won 51-3, the largest margin of victory in the series. All of those games came while Mike Price was coach. For more on the Apple Cup, read on.


• Washington State: We had the first of four stories on different relationships that span the Cascade curtain today, starting with a father-son story about the Gilbertsons. (the Everett Herald had this story which listed a bunch more connections, but there are more, with the Elisaras – Matt and Cameron – and the Poes – Tom and TJ – two more father-son stories). … We had our first look at UW. … For more from Pullman, we put up notes on the blog yesterday. … The Times’ Bud Withers gives Paul Wulff an opportunity to explain where he thinks WSU is headed.

• Around the Pac-10:’s Ted Miller looks at the best-case scenarios for all the bowl-bound conference teams. … Buster Sports’ Nick Daschel indulges in a little fantasy, saying Lyle Moevao would be the biggest “get” among conference teams. If Moevao is given another year by the NCAA, there are hundreds of guys out there who have been denied under the same circumstances (redshirt year used, then losing another season to injury) who will be breaking down the NCAA’s doors wanting to know why they didn’t get a sixth year. … Washington: Steve Sarkisian is an Apple Cup rookie … Jim Moore says all pressure is on the Huskies this year. … We’ll be covering this ground in tomorrow’s paper, but the Locker family is split by the Apple Cup. … Oregon State: It took a while for some Beavers to understand the rivalry. … Oregon: Looking back at The Drive. … California and Stanford: The two Bay Area schools will have to wait for the conference bowl picture to clear. … USC: UCLA might be biggest game of the year for the Trojans. …UCLA: The Bruins are drawing upon some fond memories. … Arizona State: The Sun Devils really need a win over UA. … Arizona: The Wildcats say the loss to Oregon is behind them, but who can be sure?


• That’s it for this morning. We’ll be back in the evening with practice notes and our story. Until then …
