College football’s rivalry week continues this afternoon with the annual Apple Cup between Washington and Washington State. Before the season, this game was circled as having potential implications for the Pac-12 championship. But both teams have struggled more than expected with 6-5 records and 3-5 conference marks. That shouldn’t dampen the intensity of the bragging rights for this one, however. Kick off is 4:00 p.m. EST at Husky Stadium.

In college hoops, the Syracuse Orange has usually found a way to slow down offenses with its zone defense, but had no luck in its recent outing against Oklahoma State as Jim Boeheim’s team gave up season highs for points in a half (43) and game (86) in an 86-72 loss to the Cowboys. Syracuse will try to rebound tonight in the consolation game of the NIT Season Tip-Off against Penn State, which blew a 21-point lead in the second half before losing to Ole Miss, 74-72. Tip off is 7:00 p.m. EST at Barclays Center. To get Dunkel’s pick for this game and the full NCAA Basketball schedule, click HERE.
