Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Apple Cup

Rival Team: Washington Huskies

Washington and Washington State play annually for the Apple Cup. The rivalry began in 1900 when the Huskies and Cougars tied 5 all in Seattle. The two teams started playing every year in 1946 with odd years being played in Seattle and even years in Pullman. The Huskies hold a 69-32-6 all-times series, but the Cougars will look to narrow the gap when the two teams meet this season in Seattle.

Battle of Palouse

Rival Team: Idaho Vandals

Washington State University and the University of Idaho are less than eight miles apart, which has lead to the creation of a strong rivalry between these two schools. The rivalry spans over multiple sports with football being the most prominent. The Cougars lead the all-time series 71-61-3 and will look to continue their eight-game winning streak when the Vandals and Cougars meet in 2016.
