NWSB Insider and Washington St. Cougars blogger Britton Ransford tells us his top 5 matchups on the Cougars schedule for the 2012 season.

And last but not least, what Pac-12 season would not be complete without the annual Apple Cup game. Look for the Cougs to start fast, and earn that elusive 6th victory this year en route to a bowl game.
