Apple Cup 2011 Final Score: Washington Defeats Washington State 38-21

The Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars met on Saturday evening to play the 2011 Apple Cup. Following a close first half, the Huskies were able to open a lead that they would not surrender, en route to a 38-21 victory.

The Huskies held the Cougars scoreless in the fourth quarter while scoring on an early fourth quarter 46 yard Eric Folk field goal and a touchdown run from Chris Polk with 5:23 left in the game. The Huskies seemed to be starting another drive with less than two minutes remaining, but came up short on a third down attempt and chose to challenge the spot. They lost the challenge and punted for a Washington State touchback.

Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael had a good game, but ultimately the Cougars defense was unable to contain the Huskies. Washington had no turnovers in the game and ran the ball for 156 yards, compared to Washington State's 43 rushing yards. Lobbestael finished the game 29-for-42 with 344 passing yards, three touchdowns and an interception.

Washington was able to lean on strong performances from running back Polk and quarterback Keith Price as the Huskies finished the regular season with a 7-5 record and a winning 5-4 within their Pac-12 conference. Polk picked up 100 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries, with a long of 34. Price finished the game 20-for-28 with 278 passing yards and three touchdowns.
