We are here in Pullman. It’s overcast, a bit breezy, but dry at this point. Let’s get the game thread started:

> Furney hits a 27-yard field goal to win the Apple Cup in overtime. Washington State was down 28-10 to start the fourth quarter and comes back to win.

> Price intercepted and WSU takes over by rule at UW 25. Bruns saved a pick-six to end the game.

> Coons is wide right. Overtime.

> Washington calls timeout. Coons readying for a 36-yard FG attempt to win the game. Five seconds to go.

> Washington at the WSU 22-yard line with 55 seconds left. Washington State has one timeout left, score tied at 28.

> Cougars hit a 45-yard field goal to tie the game 28-28 with 1:59 to go. They have scored 18 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.

> Cougars take over at their own 30-yard line with 5:04 left and down 28-25. Momentum with them after rally and forcing a UW three-and-out.

> The Cougars convert and are down 28-25 with 7:26 to go. Washington has committed 16 penalties for 119 yards.

> Washington fumble turned into a Cougars touchdown. Washington State very much in the game with 7:26 left and down

> That’s a 75-yard scoring drive for WSU and Washington had three penalties for 39 yards during it.

> Winston in and that cuts the Huskies’ lead to 28-17 with 10:41 left in the game.

> Sankey has 15 rushing touchdowns this season, which ties him with Rashaan Shehee for the second-most in a single-season. Corey Dillon holds the record with 24.

> Cougars fumble and Washington has to go just seven yards to lead 28-10 with 54 seconds left in the third quarter.

> Washington trainers looking at Bishop Sankey’s left ankle on the sideline. He’s being re-taped.

> Another WSU turnover after an on-the-money pass from Tuel went through the hands of Isiah Meyers, hit him in the facemask and popped into the air. Travis Feeney grabbed it and Washington has the ball back up 21-10 with 3:17 left in the third quarter.

> Touchdown Bishop Sankey. Washington up 21-10 with 5:32 to go.

> Josh Shirley forces a fumble and Talia Crichton recovers. UW at the WSU 12. That was Shirley’s fourth forced fumble, which ties him for second in the conference despite being a situational player most of the year.

> Huskies take the lead on a Price to Bruns 15-yard touchdown. Huskies up 14-10 with 8:20 left in the third quarter after a powerful 13-play, 89-yard drive.

> Huskies driving. Just converted a 4th-and-1 in WSU territory.

> Another penalty on Washington. They look like a completely unprepared and disengaged team to this point.

> Washington State starts with the ball at its own 25.

> Cougars up 10-7 at the half. Washington has 96 total yards and has been playing poorly in multiple facets.

> Washington forces first three-and-out of the day on Washington State.

> Washington continues to kill itself with penalties. Already has six.

> Gary Winston runs it in for a touchdown and a 10-7 WSU lead with 9:19 left. A 61-yard completion to Dominique Williams set up the score.

> Play-action to ASJ for a touchdown. Sankey came out as the fullback on the play, with Kendyl Taylor as the running back. Taylor motioned out of the backfield, Seferian-Jenkins chucked Cyrus Coen aside and had plenty of space to grab easy loft pass. Washington leads 7-3 with 12:59 to go in the second quater.

> Justin Glenn with a huge interception when he took the ball away from Brett Bartolone at the WSU 20. Washington with prime field position in a game that continues to be choppy.

> Furney hits a 21-yard field goal to put the Cougars up 3-0 with 1:52 left in the first quarters. The Cougars’ drive was 14 plays and 75 yards. Shaq Thompson’s hit at the 4-yard line kept Washington State out of the end zone.

> Huskies able to see Washington State offensive personnel before subbing their defensive group.

> Washington State has first-and-goal at the 6-yard line. John Timu’s hold erased a sack and Josh Shirley jumping offsides earlier in the drive on third-and-2 gave the Cougars a first down.

> Washington with a light defensive line. Littleton, Shirley on the ends, Hudson and Crichton inside.

> Good energy early from the Cougs in what has been an ugly game to start. Keith Price and the Washington offense certainly not in rhythm early on.

> 16-yard penalty against Cougars for illegal hands to the face keeps Washington’s drive going.

> Washington stops the Cougs on 4th-and-2 at the UW 43. Trufant on the pass breakup.

> Washington is three-and-out in the first series after trying a reverse-throw on the first play of the game which turned into an 11-yard loss.

> Washington won the toss and will receive.

> Teams out on the field. Cougs just finished up honoring their seniors, including defensive end Travis Long, who limped onto the field and will not play today.

> Martin Stadium is more than half empty 15 minutes before the game.

> Several Huskies danced on the Cougar logo at midfield — something the team has been doing the past few weeks. Also, a few of the Huskies didn’t wear shirts during warmups, another recent development.

  1. When you play down to your opponent and have no football IQ, you get a game like this.

    Good job Dawgs.

    What a steaming pile of football that was….Bowl eligible? Which game does Tidy-Bowl sponsor? Because that was ugly. Why do you start the game with a trick play? How many penalties? 15? So difficult to watch…I think there are players (and coaches) that aren’t mature enough to overcome certain setbacks.

    Top 25 team? whatever..
