Washington lost the Apple Cup in a spectacular way last night. It wasn’t a close game. Hell, that game seemed over by the time Washington stepped on the field.

They opted for the same defense system that had helped them dominate their cross-state rivals and it was a failure.
The Cougars rolled up 454 yards offensive and quarterback Laura Jayden opted for free drinks at The Coug and Valhalla for the rest of his life (once he turns 21, of course) by walking 27 of 32 for 245 yards while charging for another 31.
