No. 6 Washington tops No. 23 Washington State 45-17

No. 6 Washington tops No. 23 Washington State 45-17

Washington State has relied on Luke Falk not only for his passing accuracy (his 71.4 completion percentage leads the FBS) but his offensive acumen, frequently changing calls at the line of scrimmage, often from passes and into runs.

For the 10-1 Huskies, two more wins could mean a spot in the College Football Playoff, where they are now ranked 5th behind Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson.

Iowa broke open what was expected to be a tight game with a 75-yard TD run by Akrum Wadley and a 77-yard touchdown throw from Beathard to Riley McCarron in the first quarter.

Gabe Marks did everything he could, catching 11 balls for 112 yards and a touchdown.

This is just the sixth time both teams are ranked entering their rivalry week. "We have to have the discipline to do our job and I don't think we did". And once again, we can look to the quarterback: Luke Falk has put himself on the National Football League radar with the quality of his play over the second half of the season. "We don't have any excuses".

Washington State: The Cougars will await a second straight bowl bid. Among their possibilities is a second straight trip to the Sun Bowl at El Paso, Texas. The victor will claim the Pac-12 North title, a spot in the Pac-12 championship game and at the very least a shot at the Rose Bowl. It was the second time in the game Washington stopped WSU in a fourth-and-goal situation, both instances in which the Cougars opted to run the ball.

For the first quarter of Friday's Apple Cup, an air raid took over Pullman's Martin Stadium. But Marks rejected the notion that U-Dub has the Cougars' number. "I think if we start paying attention to that, we're paying attention to the wrong things". "They see us flying around on film, and when you got guys flying around like that, it's real easy to take your eyes off the ball and look at the defenders". In addition, this year the Cougars finally developed a competent run game capable of gashing opponents who don't respect the threat posed by Jamal Morrow, James Williams, and Gerard Wicks, presenting an entirely new aspect of the Cougar offense with which the Dawgs will have to contend.

"There is always the option out there of passing, but I liked the run blocks and thought we could punch it in", said Falk. Everybody's highly motivated, very excited.

"Early in the game, it was 21-3, so they couldn't really talk too much smack", King said. Well, there is no extra. Had they won each of those, the season could have been even more special for Mike Leach's bunch, but a two-touchdown loss last week against a stingy Colorado team showed some struggles for the Wazzu defense, which gave up more than 600 yards of offense to Colorado.

Junior defensive back Budda Baker led Washington with eight total tackles, two tackles for a loss of two yards, and one interception. The Huskies held one of the most prolific offenses in the nation to just 334 total yards, and forced seven total turnovers - including three turnovers on downs, with two coming at the goal line.

While Myles Gaskin was kept in check, rushing for only 50 yards on 16 carries (with a touchdown), Lavon Coleman picked up the slack, going for 82 yards on 10 carries.

"This is a feeling we haven't had in a while, and we don't want it again", senior defensive back Parker Henry said. The Huskies tackle well and that just wasn't going to work.

On the Dawgs' next three possessions Browning fired TD passes to Dante Pettis for 18 and 61 yards and to Ross for 6 to pump the margin to 28-3 by the end of the first quarter. It was just the second time in his career - and first time since his second start as a freshman - that Falk threw more interceptions than touchdowns in a game.

It was a surprising sight.

So yeah, the Apple Cup is huge.

Herman helped guide the Cougars (9-3, 5-3 American Athletic, No. 20 CFP) back from a 17-point halftime deficit. For Washington's Chris Petersen, college football's most unassuming star coach, Seattle is the ideal place to build a powerhouse program on a foundation of well-ordered priorities.
