By-The-Numbers: Cactus Bowl

TEMPE - By-The-Numbers back! And we are in the Land of the Sun, despite the fact that it snowed yesterday. We're here for the TicketCity Cactus Bowl between the Washington Huskies and Oklahoma State Cowboys, and when it strictly comes to the digits the 8-5 Huskies have it all over the 6-6 Cowboys. Take away Tyreek Hill's production from the Cowboys and things start to get ugly in Stillwater.
