Cougs playing for PAC-12 championship berth
SEATTLE, Wash. — No. 13 Washington State will have a chance to reach the team’s first Pac-12 title championship game by beating No. 17 Washington in the 110th Apple Cup.
This is only the seventh time in the history of the Apple Cup that both teams are ranked in the top 25.
If the WSU Cougars win they will be crowned the North Division champions. If WSU loses, Stanford will take home the division title and move on to the Pac-12 title game.

History is not on the Cougars side, the team has lost four straight games to the Huskies and have not won in Seattle since 2007.
UW is coming off a dramatic win against Utah and can finish the regular season off on the right note.
Washington Head Coach Chris Petersen is 3-0 against WSU and Washington State Head Coach Mike Leach is 1-4 vs. UW.
Washington leads the series 71-32-6.
Kick off is at 5 p.m.
