Huskies top Cougars in Apple Cup: Washington struggled in the first half of the Apple Cup on Friday, but the Dawgs eventually rallied for a 27-17 victory. (WSU coach Mike Leach has no regrets on the calls he made for the Cougars, reporter Bud Withers writes.)

The Huskies will likely have to wait until next week for a bowl-game announcement, though most have the Huskies projected to play Brigham Young in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Dec. 27 in San Francisco.
