Morning links: Getting ready for the Apple Cup

It's almost time for the Apple Cup. Here are some links.

Here is my story in advance of today's game that will, for better or worse, be decided by the Washington State passing offense, as well as these four other keys to a Cougars victory. The confident Cougars are eminently relevant as a successful season, but anything can happen in the rivalry game.

The other northwest schools are holding their rivalry game today as well, the annual Civil War between Oregon and Oregon State. The Ducks have won seven consecutive matchups with their rival. That streak probably isn't going to end today.
