Apple Cup 2011 Score Update: Washington Adds A Field Goal, Leads By 10

Suddenly a shootout has turned into a defensive struggle as the Washington State and Washington defenses clamp down, at least for the moment. The Huskies came into the fourth quarter leading by a touchdown, 28-21, and have added a field goal to make it a two-possession game. But Washington had the dagger all lined up, only to see the Washington State defense clamp down.

Nick Folk hit the field goal to push the lead to 10, and the Huskies' defense now has a 10-point cushion to work with. Add in Chris Polk as the clock-chewer and one has to wonder if that field goal puts the Apple Cup out of reach.

Washington State got tricky on its next possession as Marshall Lobbestael took a throwback pass and launched it deep to Bobby Ratliff Marquess Wilson. Lobbestael, however, had no business making the throw, and toss it right into double-coverage for what turned out to be an interception.

With just under eight minutes to go, the Huskies are up 10 in the Apple Cup, 31-21.

Correction: Lobbestael's pass was intended for Wilson, not Ratliff.
