On Friday night, the Washington Huskies and Washington State Cougars met in the Apple Cup for bragging rights. The game ended the way five others before it did: with a Washington win.
Snowy conditions stifled Washington State’s Air Raid offense as quarterback Gardner Minshew managed just 152 yards through the air. Minshew entered the game as the nation’s leading passer, throwing for at least 319 yards in every game this season.
After the game, Washington’s co-defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake had a few choice words for enigmatic cougars head coach Mike Leach.
When ask if he was surprised Washington State’s offense hasn’t made any changes year-to-year, Lake responded: “it does surprise me. But knowing what I read about the head football coach here, he does things a little bit different way. so hopefully he remains here for a long time. That would be awesome.”

Clearly there’s no love lost between these two programs.
