I root for the Washington State Cougars every day of the year except for one. Today is that day. Apple Cup Saturday returns with what should be a chilly match-up for the state's bragging rights for another year. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Martin Stadium in Pullman and will be televised on Fox Sports 1 (Channel 219 on DirecTV).
Following a second half beat down of Boise State Saturday night, which saw the University of Washington football team christen their newly renovated stadium, under the mantra 'Retake Mountlake,' the Huskies have re-entered the Top 25 in all three major college football polls.
While the 2013 men's basketball campaign was great for the statewide sweetheart Gonzaga Bulldogs, the same cannot be said for the two major state universities Washington and Washington State.
While the Zags have already assured themselves of a trip to "The Big Dance," the only chance for the Huskies or Cougars to make it is to win the Pac-12 tournament which tips-off today in Las Vegas.
