By-The-Numbers: Apple Cup

By-The-Numbers is back!

By-The-Numbers is back! After pouring through the obscene lack of numbers for the Colorado game, we're back where we started; Apple Cup week. The rivalry is as bad as its ever been, and this year is no different. Looking at the numbers is about as scary as a spoonful of Aunt June's Cranberry Sauce. So proceed, if you dare...as yes, I'm sticking my tongue out at you, WSU fans! Your team stinks!
