Complete Apple Cup Coverage Starts Wednesday

The best local package of Apple Cup stories will be published by Sportspress Northwest starting Wednesday. It’s your guide to the game’s 104th edition, this time at CenturyLink Field Saturday.

Sportspress Northwest commences its 2011 Apple Cup coverage Wednesday with a series of posts on the game’s history and significance in the Pacific Northwest.

Our package will include a quick, but thorough, glance on the Washington-Washington State rivalry, a look at the best games played by each school, a recap of the best games in the history of the series, an examination of the top plays, the best trash talk, a review of the top performances, and a complete Apple Cup record book.

Don’t miss Davis Eskenazi’s “Apple Cup Graffiti” feature, a lengthy look back at the rivalry which includes some of the more significant plays, players and developments in the series, which began in 1900.

Our Washington-Washington State package, which includes more than a dozen files, is designed to enhance your knowledge and appreciation of the rivalry, which has been known as the Apple Cup since 1962.

We start our Apple Cup 2011 coverage Wednesday with history, news and commentary.  Also, follow us on Twitter at @SportspressNW, like us on Facebook at and add us to your Google+ Circle at
