If everything keeps going the way it is, this year’s Apple Cup contest between Washington and Washington State might end up being one of the worst matchups in the history of major conference football, with both teams facing the very real possibility of being winless against FBS opponents on game day.
The Huskies are one of only two FBS teams without a win (the other is North Texas), and are now facing several more weeks without QB Jake Locker, who was the only player keeping them in any game. Meanwhile, WSU has been outscored 157-20 in three Pac-1o games. Their only win was a 48-9 victory over FCS program Portland State, but even that game wasn’t without it’s downside, with the team’s top two quarterbacks going down with season-ending neck and back injuries.
Throw in the fact that the Seahawks are suddenly horrible and the Sonics are wearing blue uniforms that say “Oklahoma City” on the front, and you have a great year to be a sports fan in Washington.
