Apple Cup 2011: Keith Price Starting At QB For Washington On Saturday

Keith Price should be back when the Washington Huskies look to win their third straight Apple Cup in a row against the Washington State Cougars.

The Washington Huskies need to reverse their downward trend after a pretty embarrassing loss to Oregon State. The formula for success against their cross-state rivals the Washington St. Cougars might be the return of starting quarterback Keith Price.

Price says he's healthy and ready to return to action after resting for a week, and Steve Sarkisian confirmed that Price is coming back on Saturday. Price should immediately inject Washington's offense with much-needed life, and they'll probably need all the offense they can get against a Washington State Cougars team that's been playing much better football at the end of the season.

With Price out, backup Husky quarterback (and son of the famous NFL legend) Nick Montana started against Oregon State. Unfortunately, Montana clearly didn't look ready to perform many of the tasks of the offense when he had to pass the football, and Washington's offense stagnated for much of the game in defeat in Corvallis.

Price has been pretty efficient at running the offense most of the season. They'll need efficiency on offense to take the Apple Cup for the third straight year.
