PULLMAN – The 110th Apple Cup has three potential windows, but the game is on a six-day selection schedule, so an official kickoff won’t be set until next Monday.
The Cougars and Huskies will kick off at 12:30 p.m. on ABC, 12:45 p.m. on ESPN, 5 p.m. on ABC or 5 p.m. on FOX, WSU announced this morning.
The Apple Cup has started at 12:30 p.m. in four of the last five seasons. The cross-state rivals had a night kickoff in 2014 (7:30 p.m.) and a late-afternoon game in 2011 (4:30 p.m.).
UW owns a 72-32-6 lead in the series and the Huskies have also won seven of the last eight games. The Cougars haven’t won since their 31-28 overtime triumph at Martin Stadium in 2012 and haven’t won in Seattle since 2007, when they beat the Huskies 42-35.
The Pac-12 set kickoff times for its other three Nov. 25 games this morning. Arizona and Arizona State will kickoff in Tempe at 1:30 p.m. PST on the Pac-12 Networks, Oregon and Oregon State will start in Eugene at 4 p.m. on ESPN and Colorado will visit Utah for a 7 p.m. PST kick on FS1 in Salt Lake City.
A nonconference game between Notre Dame and Stanford in Palo Alto will also be eligible for one of the four Apple Cup time slots.
