Okay, time for another night-time poll looking at some great UW Apple Cup moments of the past 35 years (a time period I picked mostly because it’s the era I know best).
And for this one, I decided to look at some non-QB performances, since we tend to often focus on quarterbacks when we do historical lookbacks at this series, for all the obvious reasons.
So I picked five of what on a fairly quick perusal struck me as some of the better non-QB Apple Cup games by Husky players in games that Washington won.
Pictured is Kai Ellis in the 2002 game (in a Dean Rutz photo), in which he was everywhere and forced the play everyone remembers at the end, the “backwards pass” that finally ended it.
Also included is Michael Jackson’s 1977 game (29 total tackles, 20 solo, each school records for any game, let alone an Apple Cup); running performances by Rashaan Shehee and Jacque Robinson, and Reggie Williams’ record-setting receiving game in 2001 (much of which was accomplished against WSU corner Marcus Trufant, now with the Seahawks).
