What a Friday of college football we have in store.
As we nurse our food bellies we’ll relax to the sights and sounds of true, meaningful gridiron action as some of the top teams in the nation look to solidify their postseason positioning.
One of the top matchups Friday will be in Pullman, Washington, where the Washington Huskies will take on the Washington State Cougars in an epic matchup of in-state rivals.
This is the biggest matchup between the two teams in years, with the Cougars and Huskies playing for the Pac-12 North Title and a shot at college football glory. Crapple Cup, no more.
This may be the one of the biggest games in program history for the Washington Huskies, who were recently ranked fifth in the college football playoff poll, with plenty of room for movement as Ohio State and Michigan square off in their own epic matchup.
Moving to the gridiron and away from the pools, the Huskies got back to form against a depleted Arizona State team, a week after suffering a crushing loss to the USC Trojans.
They bring a tenacious defense to the table and boast some of the best corners in the nation, corners who will be crucial to their success come Friday.
QB Jake Browning has been beyond stellar this year — save for a mediocre performance against USC — and the rest of the offense has been just as primed to lead the team to a college football playoff berth.
They’ll have the tough task of traveling to Pullman to take on the air raid Cougars, but are slightly favored heading into Friday.
Washington State Cougars
Washington State started their 2016 campaign 0-2 with losses at the hands of Eastern Washington and Boise State.
After these two losses Mike Leach was on the hot seat and it looked like the Pullman faithful would be headed towards another dreary season.
Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the Cougars got their act together, rattling off eight straight wins that included Oregon, Stanford, and UCLA back-to-back-to-back.
It’s been all about offense in Pullman, and Washington State’s attack has developed nicely this year to involve more of a running threat.
If they are able to get rolling on the offensive side of the football, the Huskies better watch out, as their defense has shown a knack for doing just enough to secure wins.

Many will look at the rankings of both teams and note that the Huskies have to be that much better than the Cougars based on their potential college football playoff positioning.
However, anything is possible in rivalry games and Washington State is a completely different team than they were at the start of the year.
The Huskies have played some close games in 2016, namely against Arizona, Utah, and USC, with their only loss coming to the Trojans back on November 12th.
The Cougars have done just the same, making this a tough game to call. It’s going to be quite the slugfest but I see plenty of points on the board in Pullman Friday afternoon.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington State +6
Does this betting pick mean I believe the Cougars will pull off the big feat of taking down the Huskies at home in a stadium where they lost to Eastern Washington to open the season? Yes.
I believe that this season has been absolutely magical for Washington State after a disastrous start and a little bit of magic will find its way into Martin Stadium one more time in 2016.
It’ll be a high-flying, lead swapping affair, a game worthy of the Apple Cup name.
