Player of the game

Washington quarterback Jake Locker put all of his talents on display, winning the first Apple Cup of his career, throwing for 196 yards and rushing for a season-high 94.

But Locker has to share this one with the entire UW defense, which pitched the first shutout for the Huskies since 1997 and UW's first in the Apple Cup since 1964.

Huskies linebacker Mason Foster made 10 solo tackles and intercepted a pass.

WSU player

of the game

Mike Ledgerwood, a sophomore linebacker, made 14 tackles, 10 of them solo.

Play of the game

Washington's first touchdown was also the Huskies' longest TD pass of the year as Locker faked a handoff to Chris Polk, then stepped up in the pocket and hit a streaking Jermaine Kearse in the end zone for a 50-yard score. That put UW ahead 10-0 with 12:41 to play in the second quarter.

Turning point

After the Cougars went three-and-out on their first drive of the third quarter, the Huskies drove 75 yards, capped by a 1-yard plunge by Polk. That put UW ahead 20-0 with 6:11 to play in the third quarter and pretty much ended the suspense.

Key stat


Huskies outgained the Cougars 274 yards to 47 in the second half.

He said it

"It's great because the trophy is back home, it's back in Seattle." — UW linebacker Darrion Jones.

By the numbers

3 WSU first downs in the second half.

30 Largest margin of victory for either team in the series since a 51-3 win for the Huskies in Pullman in 2000.

33 Yard line, the deepest the Cougars moved into Huskies territory.

40 UW's rushing attempts, most this season.

265 UW's rushing yards, most this season, and most since 334 against California in 2007.

1,019 Yards rushing this season for Polk. He's the first freshman to top 1,000 yards rushing for the Huskies.

1964 Last year the Huskies shut out the Cougars, 14-0 in a game played in Spokane.
