Five for Friday: Applelicious memories

In celebration of Apple Cup Week, I've chosen some of the best moments in the history of my school's rivalry game with the University of Washington. The past few haven't meant much in terms of the postseason because both teams have been down, but it's always nice beating your rival and claiming the bragging rights for the upcoming year. 

The stakes are somewhat high in Saturday's Apple Cup as WSU can stop the Huskies from going to a bowl game, which would be so sweet. Hopefully, the Cougs can make plays that will end up in future Apple Cup highlights countdowns for years to come along the way.


1. Apple Cup 2008:

WSU's double-overtime victory helped send UW to an 0-12 season.

2. Apple Cup 1997:

Chris Jackson had a career day with eight catches for 185 yards in a win that sent the Cougars to the Rose Bowl for the first time in 67 years. 


3. Apple Cup 2005:

Trandon Harvey caught a pass from Alex Brink and ran for the winning score to give WSU its first Apple Cup win in Seattle since 1997.

4. Apple Cup 2007:

In his final game at WSU, Alex Brink hit Brandon Gibson for the winning touchdown in the 100th Apple Cup.

5. Apple Cup 1992:

In one of the most well-known plays in Apple Cup history, Drew Bledsoe threw a 44-yard pass to Phillip Bobo, who slid into a snowbank at the back of the endzone for a touchdown in the game dubbed "The Snow Bowl."
