So, you might gather, the Apple Cup was secondary to Washington's purposes, with an emotional and highly successful season on the line. The game wasn't to be disregarded, because Washington State had knocked Washington out of the Rose Bowl twice in the last 20 years, but this time it was little more than a diversion in a long season. So pardon the Huskies if, this year anyway, they did more for their own tradition than the Apple Cup's.
