PULLMAN -- Washington State kept on fighting. And the 101st Apple Cup turned into an epic that gave the Cougs four victories out of the last five against the Huskies. From the CF.C lens; Louis Bland, Tyree Toomer, Greg Trent, Chima Nwachukwu, Kevin Lopina, Brandon Gibson, Xavier Hicks, Andy Mattingly, Matt Mullennix, Paul Wulff and one very large statue representing Cougar Pride.

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING, it's fair to say there's never been another Crapple, er, Apple Cup match up quite like the one on tap this Saturday. Not even in 1969, when the Cougs entered with one win and the Huskies none, has there been such categorical badinage. Of the 119 teams in Division I-A, the 1-10 Cougs and 0-10 Dawgs rank among the ten worst in oh-so-many of the major statistical measures.

The starters who take the field Saturday afternoon at Martin Stadium will be much different than those projected to start when fall camp opened Aug. 5. One of them, freshman Kevin Norrell, turned in a stellar practice on Friday.

PULLMAN -- If the Cougars' voluntary summer workouts are any indication, Gary Rogers and Brandon Gibson feel right at home in Wazzu's new no-huddle offense. The duo combined for three touchdowns and a bevy of completions in a spirited skelly session earlier this week out on the Palouse. Meanwhile, a pair of tight ends also had very good receiving days.

PULLMAN -- In late afternoon heat beneath the long shadows of an enlarged frame that will house the new WSU scoreboard, the entire Cougar team was on this week to shake off any lingering rust from the holiday weekend. The offense has gone to a no-huddle, high tempo attack and on this day, they lived up to that billing and then some. A jam-packed report on the Cougs' voluntary summer workouts..
