23 DAYS ‘TIL CHRISTMAS
In one of the most memorable running performances in Husky history by a running back, the 2010 Apple Cup took center stage for this Husky star.
Washington running back Chris Polk continually mauled through the Cougars for 284 yards on 29 carries, 12 short of Hugh McElhenny’s school record set more than half a century ago. He also ended up with 2 TD’s on the night, and It was the first time since 2005 that the Apple Cup had a 200-yard rusher.
The Huskies would win the game 35-28, which marked a turning point in the program as they became bowl eligible for the first time since 2002.
“Even if I had to take on the whole defense, I wasn’t going to be stopped,” Polk said, sounding as determined as he ran.
“He ran like a war daddy tonight, that’s for sure,” UW head coach Steve Sarkisian said after the Apple Cup victory.
