So what is the apple cup? Apple Cup is a historical game of football between the two famous universities in America. For this year, the Apple Cup 2024 will be held on September 14 at Husky Stadium in Pullman, WA. It’s a yearly event held between Washington Huskies, & Washington State Cougars, the two famous teams from the same state. Both teams are members of the North Division PAC-12 conference.
The Apple Cup match is traditionally the last game of the season for both teams and it’s regularly played on the Friday preceding Thanksgiving.
This is usually played due to the reason that Washington state is the largest producer of Apples in the world and so there is a match every year just at the time of Thanksgiving Day. The name “Apple Cup” is derived from that.
