Current record: Washington State 6-5; Washington 4-7
What to know
The Washington State Cougars are losing 0-5 to the Washington Huskies since November 2015, but they will have a chance to close the gap a bit on Friday. Washington State and Washington will go head-to-head in a Pac-12 battle at 8 p.m. ET at Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium. Cougars will move forward after a victory while Huskies will stumble after a defeat.
Washington State took the easy Arizona Wildcats last week and took home a 44-18 victory. The contest only ended at the end of the third round, when Washington State had won a 37-10 advantage. RB Max Borghi had a stellar game for Washington State as he rushed in for two TDs and 139 yards on 16 carry. This is the first time Borghi has reached more than 100 quick yards in an entire year.
Meanwhile, all were 10-10 down at halftime, but the Huskies weren’t quite as close to the Colorado Buffaloes in the second half when they met this past Saturday. Washington only lost to the Buffaloes with a score of 20-17. Despite being 252 feet more than Colorado, Washington was unable to convert that extra measure into a score. No one had a standout game that upset Washington, but they got the score from WR Rome Odunze and WR Ja’Lynn Polk. Dylan Morris’ 55-yard touchdown against Polk in the fourth inning created one of the most memorable moments of the afternoon.
This next game is expected to come to an end, with the Cougars coming out with just 1 favorite. The brave souls who put their money in Washington against the disparity had faith in a disappointment because their team’s 3-7 record ATS couldn’t hold out against Washington State 7-3.
Washington State’s win brings them up 6-5 while Washington’s loss drags them down 4-7. Two stats to keep in mind when watching: Washington State is 233rd worst nationally in the number of interceptions thrown, with 13th on the season. The Washtons have had the hardest time of all: they’re stumbling over the 220th-most interceptions game in the nation, with 12 interceptions during the season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
