Sat., Nov. 25: Washington State at Washington
The 2017 Apple Cup is at stake, so you can be certain that this game will mark all out performances by both teams. Washington State is a very good team, and wants to go out on top this year. But the Washington Huskies have their number.
The Washington State Cougars come to town at the end of a very impressive season. Quarterback Luke Falk has a great season, and is already rumored to be a high draft choice in the 2018 NFL Draft. Wide Receiver Tavaris Martin Jr. will be back too.
But the Washington Huskies have endured the agony of defeat once this year, and once is enough. This game could very well be for the PAC-12 North title, and when Coach Petersen smells titles, he smells victory.
Look for the Washington Huskies defense to come up huge. Defensive tackle Vita Vea will dominate on the defensive line, and that pressure will force Falk to throw off his heels. The defensive backs come up big in this game, bringing in two interceptions. With the Huskies firing on all cylinders, they grab the lead and force the Cougars to air it out in the second half.
This one is a thriller, and rockets the Huskies to the PAC-12 North title.
