Things are thinning out in both camps heading into another Apple Cup on Saturday in Seattle.
The Washington Huskies have able bodies to fill holes, especially on defense. They spent another bye week looking at their cadre of young talent, seeing where they can best be effective in the short- and long-term.
Washington State? It's an all-out limp to the finish of 2009.
Cougars coach Paul Wulff is one of the only Pacific-10 coaches who holds a Sunday press conference, and gave an update on some of his personnel situations:
The Cougars gave up just one sack to Oregon State in the Beavers' 42-10 victory in Pullman.
There will be a few "wash" grades in the positional matchups for this Apple Cup, but offensive line might be the one WSU will have an advantage heading into the game.
Wulff said he will move walkon receiver Colin Huemmer over to defense this week and give him snaps at safety – something Easton Johnson did last Thursday from his receiver spot. He had 10 tackles against the Beavers.
The team might be playing a 3-4 scheme almost exclusively if one or none of the big men out return.
