This is a little debate that we had in the office. If you combined the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars into one football team how many games would they win in the Pac-10 and how many Cougars would start versus how many Huskies would start.
Here is the position-by-position breakdown. I have put in bold who I would start.

My breakdown finishes with 17 Cougars and 6 Huskies with one push at punter.
The next question is how many game would this team win?
