All-time Apple Cup rosters UW, WSU

In 110 Apple Cups, there’s been many great players from Washington and Washington State.

Could you imagine what it would be like to get all of the best of the best together and play one Ultimate Apple Cup? Well, we did.

It would be the greatest Apple Cup of all-time… if things like time and space weren’t an issue. Thankfully, on the internet, it’s not a problem.

Mind you it’s not easy to pick these teams. Would Cougs fans prefer one of their legendary quarterbacks over Alex Brink, who never lost an Apple Cup? And which two Husky running backs to pick?

Keep reading to find out. Enjoy.

So, where is this game going to be played at? I mean, is there any question? It’s the greatest setting in college football. Of course we’re playing this at Husky Stadium. No offense to those who wave the banner of the Cougars but Martin Stadium isn’t exactly the most picturesque setting.

Prediction

Well, you’ve got the best of both sides and in a close game I’ve the the Huskies outlasting the Cougars. The difference being a late TD by Myles Gaskin gives UW a 35-31 lead. As Bledsoe leads the Cougars down the field, he’s intercepted in end zone by Budda Baker to preserve the 35-31 Husky victory.

I hope 111th edition of the Apple Cup gives us that type of excitement.
