Apple Cup 2011: Chris Polk Plays His Final Apple Cup For UW

The Washington Huskies have had one of the nation's most underrated running backs in Chris Polk. He will try to conclude his career in Seattle with his third consecutive Apple Cup victory.

Polk has suffered from mediocre offensive line play throughout his days as a Husky. Even though he generated four to five yards per carry, Washington has not been able to generate as much from Polk as they would have liked because of the genuine struggles to win the battle of the line of scrimmage up front. Polk had 100 yard games most of the season, but only managed a combined 116 yards in two crucial losses to Oregon and USC.

Polk has brought it for the Apple Cup. He rushed for 130 yards in the 2009 demolition of the Washington St. Cougars, then put up a pretty impressive 284 spot in 2010 to help bring UW a crucial win necessary for bowl eligibility. With Keith Price still ginger after injury, Washington might have to turn to Polk to lead them to a rivalry victory.
