Here’s a look at some of the notable numbers from No. 6 Washington’s 45-17 win over No. 23 Washington State on Friday in Pullman.

4: Consecutive wins by Washington in the Apple Cup series. That’s halfway to the longest win streak in Apple Cup history, which was set by UW from 1974 to 1981.

3: Number of those wins that have come under head coach Chris Petersen, who is undefeated against WSU since coming to Washington.

1: Number of Apple Cup wins the Cougars have under Mike Leach, who coached his fifth Apple Cup on Friday.

252: Passing yards thrown by Jake Browning and the Huskies in the first quarter of their win, the most given up by an FCS team in any game this year, according to ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura.

3: Times the Huskies intercepted Washington State quarterback Luke Falk, marking just the second time in Falk’s career that he had thrown three or more picks. The other occasion was Nov. 22, 2014, when he threw four against Arizona State as a freshman.

13:21: Total time of possession in the first half for WSU.

12:31: Time of possession for WSU in the third quarter alone, coming on just two drives.

22: Rushing yards for Washington in the first quarter.

146: Rushing yards for Washington from the second quarter on.
