Cougs, Dawgs: much at stake | Shiers

Plenty is at stake when Washington and Washington State renew the Apple Cup on Saturday (5:30 p.m. FOX TV).

The No. 15 Huskies are early 10-point favorites to beat the 14th-ranked Cougars at Husky Stadium.

The game is a sellout.

The Cougars (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12), who have not won an Apple Cup since 2012, need a victory over the Huskies (6-2, 9-2) to clinch the Pac-12 North Division title and a trip to the conference championship game against South champion USC at Santa Clara, Calif., on Dec. 1.

A Husky win sends Stanford to the title game against the Trojans.
