SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The Apple Cup game on Friday may be Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel's last appearance as a Cougar. Or it may not.
The NCAA has not decided whether it will grant Tuel an extra year of eligibility, and Tuel has not decided if he would return even if another year is offered.
It's been an emotional season for Tuel, who has been in and out of the starting lineup as coach Mike Leach has juggled him and sophomore Connor Halliday.
Tuel started last weekend's game against Arizona State, but was yanked in favor of Halliday when the Cougars didn't move the ball. They ended up losing 46-7.
Leach says Tuel will likely start Friday's game against archrival Washington.
