Cougs upset Huskies 31-28 in overtime in Apple Cup thriller

PULLMAN — The Washington State Cougars overcame an 18-point deficit and kicked a 27-yard field goal in overtime to upset the Washington Huskies in the Apple Cup Friday.

It was WSU’s first Apple Cup win since 2008.

The Huskies, now 7-5, had been favored by two touchdowns over the Cougars, which had only two wins this season entering the game. The Cougs are now 3-9.

UW had led by 18 points — 28-10 — after the third quarter.  But in the fourth quarter, WSU running back Carl Winston scored on two rushing touchdowns and the Cougs added a two-point conversion and kicked a field goal to tie the game at 28-28.

The Huskies had a chance to win the game with only seconds left in the fourth quarter, but kicker Travis Coons missed a 35-yard field goal attempt, sending the game into overtime.

Washington quarterback Keith Price then threw an interception on the first play of overtime that WSU defensive lineman Kalafitoni Pole snatched in UW territory.  The Cougs were able to pick up a first down to get closer to the goal line, and then kicker Andrew Furney kicked the 27-yard game-winning field goal.

Elated WSU fans decked out in crimson and gray ran out of the stands and onto the field in celebration.

    Some idiot just made the comment, "Did the Cougars win or did the Huskies just let it slip away?" Look at the game. Both teams played hard and never quit. The Cougs won. Period.

    chances of exoneration, simply because they don’t know their
    rights. San Diego is known to have high crime rates in the whole of the country.
