Apple Cup 2010: Huskies Lead Cougars After First Quarter, 7-0

The Washington Huskies put the Washington State in a meat-grinder, spitting the Cougs out after a 16-play, 98-yard touchdown drive that spanned 8:31. The Huskies did it on the ground, using 54 yards from Chris Polk to sustain the drive. Polk, with those 54 yards, is over 2,000 yards for his career.

The Cougars had Jake Locker bottled-up on fourth and one, but Jake Locker escaped the grasp of Travis Long, rumbling for the first down. The Huskies capitalized from there, when Chris Polk carried a defender into the end zone.

It’s been a tale of mistakes for Washington State today, with three first quarter chop blocks backing the Cougar offense up. Despite moving the ball well on the first possession, the Cougs were forced to punt with the ball at the Washington 44. Reid Forrest pinned the Huskies back at the two, and the rest is history.

After a quarter of play, it’s the Huskies over the Cougars, 7-0.
