The Apple Cup in Palouse with a local kick at 7:30 p.m. – the local cougars must love that at this spot.
The forecast for Pullman Saturday night is cold with wet weather, either freezing rain or snow. This isn’t ideal for Washington’s powerful pass attack, which meets the best defense they’ve seen all season. The Cougars rank 12th in defensive efficiency and 21st in points per drive. They’re primed to slow down Washington’s pass attack, which we’ve seen is possible when they play better defenses like Oregon State and Cal.
Yes, I am concerned about Washington State’s offense in the cold and wet conditions. The Cougars can run the ball, although they mostly ignore this part of their offense. They have a shaky offensive line that can lead to pressure and errors from quarterback Cam Ward.
However, Washington’s defense should not put up much resistance. I like it when the home cougars throw up a little surprise in this game.
SELECT: Washington (+2 on FOX bet) to losee with less than 2 points (or win directly)
