22 Places to Watch the 2019 Apple Cup in Seattle – TheStranger.com

Get ready for the Apple Cup kick-off at 1 p.m. Shutterstock

For the 112th year, the Washington State Cougars and the University of Washington Huskies will face off in the Apple Cup, Washington State’s biggest annual rivalry football game that takes place the day after Thanksgiving (Fri Nov 29 at 1 p.m.), and whose winning team earns a shot at the PAC-12 championship. If you don’t have tickets to see the game live at Husky Stadium, there are plenty of bars and restaurants screening the game and slinging food and drink specials. See them all below, or find them on our Apple Cup calendar.
