The Washington-Washington State football rivalry dates to 1900 when the teams played to a 5-5 tie at Athletic Park in Seattle. Washington State was then called “Washington Agricultural College” and its football team was known as the “Staters” or “Aggies. The school did not adopt the nickname “Cougars” until 1919.

Washington did not become the Huskies until 1922. Prior to that, UW teams were called “Purple and Gold,” “Sun Dodgers” and, briefly, “Vikings.”

The rivalry has been contested continuously since 1945. The teams did not play each other in 1905-06, 1909, 1915-16, 1918, 1920 and 1943-44. The Governor’s Cup was presented to the series winner from 1934-61. Since then, the Washington State Apple Commission and, more recently, Boeing, has sponsored the presentation of the Apple Cup trophy to the winner.
