BLACK FRIDAY INDEED

COUGS COULDN'T CONTAIN PRICE IN SECOND HALF

SEATTLE -- Washington State's offense had few answers for Washington's sack-happy defense on Friday, while the Husky offense overcame two first-half turnovers to put matters into overdrive in the third quarter. And just like that, a 10-3 WSU halftime lead devolved into a 27-17 Husky victory in the 106th renewal of the Apple Cup rivalry.

Washington scored 17 straight in the third quarter before the Cougars came back with a 10-play scoring drive, highlighted by a big conversion on fourth down, to narrow the score to 20-17 on a Connor Halliday-to-Dom Williams TD pass midway through the fourth quarter.

The conversion gave the Cougs life, and then WSU's defense forced a punt and the Cougar offense had more than five minutes on the clock to make a defining drive. But an errant Halliday throw behind the receiver resulted in an interception and UW scored shortly after to salt the game away.

We'll be back with more coverage shortly...
