Dawgman.com By-The-Numbers: Apple Cup

By-The-Numbers is back! And it's been a privilege to decimate the decimals all season for ya, but we've got at least one more game to go - the Apple Cup. One Hundred and Seven of these babies have been played before! Can't say I've been around to see all of them, but this year's game looks to be as competitive a matchup as we've seen in years. But who do the numbers favor? And do those numbers change if Washington State is without gunslinger Luke Falk?
