Q(B) & A: Four Washington State quarterbacks who’ve beat Washington relive their favorite Apple Cup memories

Ryan Leaf played in three Apple Cups and won his last one, in 1997. Alex Brink became the “Husky Killer” after defeating UW on three occasions – 2004, 2005 and 2007. Timm Rosenbach got it done on his third try, leading the Cougars to a 32-31 win in 1988. It took Jeff Tuel four attempts, but the last WSU QB to snare a win over the Huskies was responsible for a 31-28 overtime triumph in 2012.

NFL notebook: Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly ready for action after missing three games

Jaguars sign former WSU QB Jeff Tuel to practice squad

Bills waive QB Tuel

The Buffalo Bills have shuffled their depth at quarterback by claiming Matt Simms and waiving former Washington State star Jeff Tuel. The Bills were awarded Simms on Friday, a day after he was cut by the New York Jets. He spent two seasons in New York and is reunited with former coach Rex Ryan in Buffalo. The 26-year-old had 195 yards passing with one touchdown and an interception in four appearances. Tuel’s two-year tenure is over in Buffalo. He made the Bills as an undrafted rookie in 2013, and struggled in two appearances, including a start in a 23-13 loss to Kansas City. Tuel spent last season on the practice squad. The Bills are in the midst of a starting quarterback competition between EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor. – Associated Press

Much on line for Leinart tonight

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Preposterous as it might have once sounded, quarterback Matt Leinart finds himself suddenly having much in common with Jeff Tuel.

Marquess Wilson selected by Chicago in seventh round

Marquess Wilson’s controversial departure from Washington State didn’t prevent the record-setting receiver from being chosen in this year’s NFL draft. But it probably didn’t help his stock.
