Washington State threatened through the 2011 Apple Cup, but Chris Polk's last run will probably do it as the Huskies hold a 38-21 lead with just over five minutes to go. The touchdown was Polk's second of the day, the first of which came on a pass from Keith Price. Polk carried the Huskies on the drive, ripping off a 33-yard run after a holding call to set the Huskies up on the two.
Polk's been almost missing throughout, with the Huskies electing to ride Price's arm instead of using the ground game. But when Washington needed to chew clock and gain yards, it turned to Polk, and he answered the call.
For a moment, the Huskies were pushed out of field goal range, but Polk got the yardage back and more on his lengthy run down to just about the goalline. Two plays later, he was in the end zone, and the Huskies had a 17-point lead.
With just under five minutes to go now, the Huskies have all but secure a 2011 Apple Cup win, leading the Cougars 38-21.
