Even after playing 46 minutes of Washington’s double-overtime grinder against Long Beach State, C.J. Wilcox had the energy to jump in front of a difficult question.
Mike Anderson tallied a double-double as one of six players in double figures for the Washington Huskies, who outlasted the Long Beach State 49ers, 92-89, in double overtime at Alaska Airlines Arena.

It was the last real play Keith Price would run at Husky Stadium, and the Washington Huskies senior quarterback wanted to savor the experience.
Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday entered Fridays Apple Cup as the No. 3 passer in the nation, both in total passing yards and passing yards per game.
The third quarter changed the Apple Cup on Friday, and it was a screen pass from Keith Price to Bishop Sankey that changed the third quarter in Washingtons direction.
With a juke and a spin move, Bishop Sankey wove through the Huskies revelers on the field and headed up the tunnel toward the Washington locker room.
Bishop Sankey blitzed Washington State for 139 of his 200 yards rushing in the second half to become Washington's all-time single-season rushing leader, and the Huskies reclaimed the Apple Cup with a 27-17 win over the Cougars on Friday afternoon.
The Huskies held off the Cougars, 27-17, in the 106th Apple Cup. Check out all the postgame news and notes on Christian Caple's Huskies Insider blog.

As Keith Price reflected on his career as a University of Washington football player — a five-year ride that has spanned the length of the Steve Sarkisian era — he did so without knowing whether he might play in his team’s regular-season finale.
