Here is the information from today's press announcment concerning the Apple Cup football game: Washington State at Husky Stadium on Nov. 24.
Bottom line: Boeing is the title sponsor.
A few details:
&bullThere's a kind of cool logo (shown). And the game is refered to as The Apple Cup in big type, followed in smaller type by "Proudly sponsored by Boeing." (It's kind of hard to see because I reproduced the logo so small, but the leaf is in the shape of a football.)
&bullThe main meaning for fans will be a luncheon at the Qwest Events Center (between Seahawks Stadium and Safeco Field) with both teams, bands, cheerleaders, etc., following the downtown Thanksgiving parade.
&bullThe main meaning for the schools is money, but no one would say how much.
Our afternoon meeting with coach Tyrone Willingham didn't produce much news, except for an injury update that was mostly status quo: Coach Tyrone Willingham said the Huskies health report has not changed this week, with only fullback Luke Kravitz (hand) unavailable. He said cornerback Byron Davenport, who was held out of the Syracuse game with a lingering hamstring injury, has "done OK."
