The No. 23 Washington State Cougars will host the fifth-ranked Washington Huskies on Friday afternoon in a division-deciding edition of the 2016 Apple Cup.
Washington (10-1, 7-1 Pac-12) has College Football Playoff hopes on the line. With a win, the Huskies would claim the Pac-12 North title and be one victory away from the championship tournament.
Although the prize isn’t the same for Washington State (8-3, 7-1), the Cougs would advance to the conference championship game for the first time. Wazzu hasn’t won the Pac-12 since 2002.
FOX will televise the pivotal showdown, which is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff. Bleacher Report will provide scoring updates and highlights throughout the game.
