PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University's Martin Stadium is buried under snow.  And crews are working as fast as possible to clear the snow from the grand-stands so everybody can enjoy Saturday's Apple Cup.

But clearing the snow is a massive undertaking.  By Friday, 150 people will be working feverishly to get rid of all the snow.  A crew hit the field Tuesday and started on the buried bleachers Wednesday.  They even took a cue from the Green Bay Packers playbook.  They created shuts on either sides of the bleachers in each section to push the snow down.

Some areas, like the concourse, will not be touched until after another expected round of snow comes through Thursday.

All the snow is being dumped at the Beasley Coliseum parking lot.  That is where tailgaters set up before the game.  But this year don't expect an Apple Cup tailgate party.
