Washington State wraps up its 2010 college football season this weekend against rival Washington in the Apple Cup. It doesn't get any bigger for Coug fans, or for Husky fans for that matter.

The Cougars are coming off a 31-14 win at Oregon State and are trying to put together their first win streak since 2007. A win against Washington would be a nice way to win two in a row and close out the season.

"It'd be huge momentum going into the offseason - an away Pac-10 win and then a home Pac-10 win as well," said quarterback Jeff Tuel at practice on Tuesday. "It's just huge for our team for our workouts and our offseason."

"It'd be huge," agreed receiver Jared Karstetter. "It's something that we haven't done here yet and to come off a big one just a couple of weeks ago, and the momentum I think we'd carry into the offseason will be big."

Meanwhile, some media outlets continue to speculate as to what will happen with head coach Paul Wulff after the season is finished. Some say he'll be fired. Others predict he'll stay. The only thing for sure is Athletic Director Bill Moos has kept his silence on the matter.

The News Tribune of Tacoma said Tuesday that former Oregon Ducks coach Mike Bellotti "hinted Monday that he might be interested in the Washington State job". Moos was the A.D. at Oregon when Bellotti coached in Eugene, and the two remain close friends.
