It's been a long time since both the Huskies and Cougars enjoyed the amount of success this late in the college football season as they have this year. The Huskies enter Friday's game as the No. 6 nationally ranked team according to the Associated Press at 10-1 overall and 7-1 in Pac-12 play while the Cougars are ranked No. 23 with an 8-3 overall record and a 7-1 mark in Pac-12 play.

The winner of Friday's game wins the Pac-12 North division and plays for the Pac-12 Championship on Dec. 2 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Since the Pac-10 expanded in 2010, neither the Huskies nor Cougars have advanced to the championship game. The Cougars earned a split of the Pac-10 Championship back in 2002, tying with USC at 7-1 while the Huskies split with Oregon and Oregon State in 2000 at 7-1 each.

Who do you think will win Friday's game?

"The Huskies because they just have the better defense all the way around."

"It's going to be a good game this year. The best they've been in a long time. The Huskies will pull it out and win the Pac-12 North."

T.J. Lund

"UW strictly due to the fact that WSU hasn't seen a secondary like UW's this year."

Ethan Enstead.

"WSU. I think they're the stronger team and I believe it's their year. Just like the Cubs."

Mary Huber.

"I'm going to say the Cougs are going to win. They're playing in Pullman which is a big help and they're hungry. It's their turn."

Barb Stout.

"I believe that Washington will win a very close game if the weather holds in their favor. It's going to be an awesome game."

Craig Cramer.
