SEATTLE -- Keith Price threw three touchdown passes to become Washington's all-time single-season leader in that category, the final one a 22-yard toss to Chris Polk, and Washington held off rival Washington State 38-21 on Saturday night to win the 104th Apple Cup.
Price threw his 29th touchdown pass of the season midway through the third quarter, finding Polk to give the Huskies a 28-14 lead. Washington State pulled within 28-21, but Erik Folk's 46-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter pushed the lead to 10 and Polk capped the Huskies third straight Apple Cup title on Polk's 1-yard TD run with 5:23 left.
Price, who sat out last week's loss at Oregon State due to injury, finished 21 of 29 for 291 yards.
The Huskies (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12) snapped a three-game losing streak and sent the Cougars (4-8, 2-7) into an offseason filled with questions.
