Happy (for WSU) Apple Cup links


FROM PULLMAN — Each Sunday morning, we recap the coverage of the previous day's game. Well, it's Saturday morning. But in case you hadn't heard, there was a football game here yesterday. It went well for the home team. Read on.

Among our Apple Cup coverage last night: our game story focusing on the classic nature of Friday's game, our notebook focusing on the seniors, our keys to the game and our scoring summary. In addition, John Blanchette had a column, and Jim Allen wrote stories about Washington's penalty issues and Logan Mayes' big game. … We had a bunch of video on the blog last night. … And had a transcript of Mike Leach's press conference, as well as our usual tale of the tape. … Tyler Tjomsland captured the big moments well in this big-picture story photo gallery. … The Seattle Times also has a great deal of coverage, from Bud Withers' column to Jerry Brewer's column to Bob Condotta's game story. … Condotta also has a story on the UW penalties, and a notebook leading with some details of UW's offensive play in overtime. … Here's a story in the Kitsap Sun. … Howie Stalwick also writes about Logan Mayes. … Ryan Divish has this sidebar. … Here's the  AP story.

In other Pac-12 action …

Utah 42, Colorado 35 — Utah's running back broke his arm but also cracked the 1,000 yard mark. … The season is finally over for the hapless Buffaloes.

Arizona State 41, Arizona 34 — Arizona couldn't counter ASU's momentum. The Sun Devils are happy to have the Territorial Cup back.

Elsewhere … Stanford and UCLA could play twice. … USC is facing an unexpected situation against Notre Dame today. … The Ducks might have a slight edge over Oregon State.

We'll be at Beasley Coliseum tonight for WSU's game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
