NOTE: The Boeing Apple Cup, Nov. 25 vs. Washington State, will kick off at 1:00 p.m. PT and air on FOX-TV.

THE GAME: The Washington football team (10-0, 7-0 Pac-12) travels south to Corvallis, Ore., to face Oregon State (8-2, 5-2), with both teams’ Pac-12 title game hopes still on the line. A UW win would clinch a place in Las Vegas on Dec. 1. The game is the 108th between the two, old rivals, who first met on the gridiron in 1897. In none of those previous 107 games were both teams ranked in the top-10 in Associated Press poll, as they are now. In fact, on only three prior occasions have they both both in the AP Top 20/25 at the time of the game. Kickoff at Reser Stadium is at 4:30 p.m. and the game will air on ABC-TV. The following week, the Dawgs close out the regular season at Husky Stadium, with the 115th Apple Cup, vs. Washington State.
