Apple Cup 2010: Huskies Break It Open With Chris Polk Touchdown Run

UpdateFollow the Apple Cup 2011

It’s the Chris Polk show in Pullman in the Apple Cup. The Husky tailback has ran over the Cougars all afternoon, picking up 220 yards on the ground. It’s a career-high for Polk and he becomes the first Husky running back over 200-yards in an Apple Cup since Rashaan Shehee. The last of those yards came on a 56-yard touchdown run that likely sealed the game for the Huskies. With 13 minutes to go, Washington leads Washington State, 28-14.

The Washington Huskies were stuffed at the goal-line to open the fourth quarter. Jake Locker and Jesse Callier got crossed-up from the one yard line. The ball hit the turf, allowing Kevin Kooyman to scoop it up and rumbled to about midfield.

The Cougars, however, couldn’t take advantage either. On fourth down, Jeff Tuel dropped back to pass, but was sack, giving the Huskies the ball back. On the next play, Polk worked his magic, finding the end zone and striking what may prove to be the death blow.

Early in the fourth quarter, Washington leads Washington State, 28-14.
