Based on the recent records and strong performance in recent years, the Washington Huskies are the favorite to win this year's edition as well because of two reasons -
- Recent Records: Although Huskies have a higher hand, Cougars will be playing at its home ground and so they are favorites to win it.
- Cougar's Recent Win: It's 50-50 chance post-pandemic.
Note: Predictions are based on team formation, home venue, players form, coach, management, and other skills in place.
This is one of the jokes that I liked the most -
What’s the difference between a Cougar cheerleader and an elephant? About 12 pounds.
That was funny, and there are others -
How do you keep a Husky out of your front yard? Put up goal posts.
Why did 18 Cougars or 18 Huskies go to a film together? Because it said, “Under 17 not admitted.”
Why did the Husky stare at the frozen orange juice container for so long? Because it said, “concentrate.”
When was the last time Washington State won the cup?
Cougars did it in 2021 and it was in 2012 at Pullman, they last won the Governor's cup. In 2012, it wasn't a cakewalk either, with the match being decided in overtime. They won it with a score of 31-28.
Who is the current Winner of this year's edition?
Last time, Washington Huskies won it but the current title holder for the 2021 match is Washington State University Cougars(WSU) team.
Who is the favorite to win this year's Apple Cup?
Looking at the recent records, Washington Huskies were favorites to win this 2021 year edition of the Governor's cup but WSU pipped UW to claim the title.
Why Was Governor's Trophy was cancelled in 2020?
Last year's edition of the Governor's Trophy was cancelled due to Covid-19 virus pandemic.
When did WSU win Apple?
It was in 2021 that WSU ended the Governor's cup thirst for 8 years (last won in 2012). And that's a fresh beginning for the team that needs more wins to settle the win-loss ratio since the beginning of this historical event.
No matter which team u stand to cheer up for, you’ll definitely want to catch the action live in person. So gear-up people for the heated rivalry to blow out of proportion this season. So that's all about the Apple cup 2022 date, tv, time, schedule, recent records, history, and ticket details.
