SEATTLE – A week ago, Connor Halliday expressed his excitement about playing in his first Apple Cup. And this will be one he will remember – for all the wrong reasons. Trailing by three late in the game at Husky Stadium, the Cougars were driving downfield when he threw an interception that set up a Husky touchdown. Then he did it again on the ensuing play to give Washington a 27-17 win.
Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday was pretty sure why his team lost 55-21 to No. 25 Arizona State on Thursday night.

EUGENE - With the Cougars down just one score to Oregon State in the fourth quarter, junior quarterback Connor Halliday threw a trio of picks on his team's next three possessions. The turnover spree all but sealed the deal for the Beavers.
We were blessed with some tight games, some close finishes, and a couple of near-upsets last weekend. Of course, last-second heroics like Ohio State’s miraculous back-door cover did nothing to help this particular trio of Tailgaters, but taken all together last Saturday offered tons of excitement.
This week, all three of us managed to at least break even in our predictions. When...
