2012 College Football Schedule: Apple Cup highlights the week

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

It's rivalry week in Washington as the Huskies and Cougars face off in the Apple Cup on Friday.

While the stakes have been higher in previous editions, Friday's Apple Cup will once again be the focus of college football in Washington.

With Washington already securing its bowl eligibility and the Cougars long eliminated from postseason contention, pride will be the biggest prize on Friday. Washington could improve its bowl bid by moving up the Pac-12 standings with a win, but knocking off their rival is the bigger focus.

Washington has won four straight games and has not allowed more than 17 points over that span. The Cougars have gone the opposite direction, as they have lost eight straight games and have surrendered at least 44 points in each of their last three games. After battling injuries and being replaced against Arizona State, Jeff Tuel is expected to start at quarterback for Washington State.

The Apple Cup will be only one of several Pac-12 rivalry games this week. Here is a closer look at this week's conference schedule:

Friday, November 23

3 p.m. ET: Utah at Colorado

3:30 p.m. ET: Washington at Washington State

10 p.m. ET: Arizona State at Arizona

Saturday, November 24

3 p.m. ET: Oregon at Oregon State

6:30 p.m. ET: Stanford at UCLA

8 p.m. ET: Notre Dame at USC
