Husky Classics in :60-This Week: Apple Cup, Hoops Win Over ‘Cats
In the absence of live sporting events, we will be re-broadcasting two classic University of Washington games from myriad seasons/sports in a condensed one-hour form, back-to-back, every Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
In this 10th and final week of re-broadcasts, we kickoff "Husky Classics" today with the 2017 Apple Cup played on November 25th. It was deemed "Bob Rondeau Day" in Seattle in tribute of the Huskies long-time play-by-play announcer who was calling his final game between the U-Dub and the Wazzu Cougars.
Both teams entered the game in the top 15 in the nation with a trip to the Pac-12 Championship game on the line for WSU and a BCS bid to the Fiesta Bowl for the Huskies.
Our second replay is the 2018 Pac-12 clash at Hec Ed Pavilion when Washington hosted the Arizona Wildcats on the hardwood. It was Head Coach Mike Hopkins first year at the helm on Mountlake. The previous year, Washington only managed 9 wins. The 9th-ranked Wildcats had beaten UW8 consecutive times dating back to 2012. This game occured on Saturday, February 3rd and went down to the last possession.
