It's a little over two hours until kickoff and the sun is shining the day is cool but not cold -- yet. In other words, just about a perfect setting for this 100th Apple Cup, which is, by the way, proudly presented by Boeing.
Normal gameday drill on the blog: I'll pop in with pregame notes as they reveal themselves, then quarterly updates, then turn it over to you for postgame comments before I click back in tonight with notes and quotes.
Kickoff is 4 p.m. and the game will be shown on FSN.
2:40: The stadium has opened, a few fans have trickled in, and the first players from both teams are on the field warming up. Sun still shining, but it's going to get cold out there before this thing is done.
Never miss a local story.
3:20: Both teams are out on the field now. As has become their Apple Cup custom, the Cougs are wearing their throwback helmets: silver with the word "Cougars" rather than the "WSU" logo.
4:07: Senior Day introductions about to begin ... actual kickoff is set for 4:15, not the 4 o'clock we were told earlier in the week.
4:15: Due to Senior Day festivities, Juan Garcia handled captain duties alone. Huskies will receive. Play ball.
