Century-Old Rivalry Renewed as UW, WSU Dual in Seattle
April 30, 2003
Historic Affair: Washington's oldest rivalry, now its third century, returns to Husky Stadium on Saturday for the first time since 1999. WSU's men have defeated the Huskies in each of the past two seasons and four of the past five, amassing an overall record of 64-30-1 against Washington. Founded in 1892, WSU was just eight years old when the two squads first met in 1900, the Huskies routing the nubile Cougars, 74-41. The UW dominated the early years of the series, taking 15 of the first 17 duals, but the Cougars have turned the table, winning 32 of the last 37 clashes . Last year's dual in Pullman was one of the series' best, the Cougars nipping UW, 103-99, despite school-record performances by Brad Walker and Kameko Gay. Gay's effort went for naught as the Huskies fell, 105-98, for just the eighth time in 26 meetings with WSU. The win was the fifth straight for WSU in the women's series, which began in 1979.
