Both the Washington Huskies and Washington State Cougars have taken the field for warmups ahead of the 2010 Apple Cup in Pullman. Both teams are fired up, with a little skirmish taking place as a few of the Washington players headed to the Cougar logo on the 50-yard line to do a little pogo. Washington State took exception, and there was a meeting of the minds. And that’s all it was. Cooler heads prevailed and the teams headed off on their merry ways.
For the fashion folks, Washington is wearing black pants, white jerseys and gold helmets. On the other side of the field, Washington State has crimson pants, crimson jerseys and grey helmets, with a script Cougar logo. The Cougar uniform is a throwback to the days of old.
As for the weather, it’s cold. Very cold. And yet, there was Quinten Richardson, Mason Foster and Jesse Callier, warming-up without shirts on. Frostbite be damned, they were determined to show off their macho sides.
The Cougars and Huskies kick the Apple Cup off at 4 p.m. on Versus.
