Wounded Cougars Face The No. 2 Ducks

The Washington State Cougars are at least outwardly undaunted even though they’re more than five-touchdown underdogs to second-ranked Oregon.

Ducks Are On Cougars’ Radar

Washington State players said they can’t dwell on an ugly home loss to Oregon State last weekend. Not with No. 2 Oregon on the schedule Saturday.

Two Prolific Passing Offenses Will Face Off Saturday In Martin Stadium

Last year, Oregon St. held WSU to 207 yards passing, intercepted four passes and won 19-6. The Beavers forced Halliday to the bench after he went 9-for-20 passing for 81 yards and three picks. Both teams have changed, of course, so it remains to be seen how much can be gathered from last year’s contest.

Dion: Backs Power WSU In Win

It was the first win for WSU at Cal since 2002, snapping an 8-game losing streak to the Bears. In 2002, Jason Gesser was at the helm, leading WSU to an eventual Rose Bowl appearance. This time it was Halliday who finished 42-for-67 with 521 yards passing, falling just 10 yards shy of the school record.

Washington State Faces Familiar Foe In California

The matchup with the Cal Bears reunites WSU head coach Mike Leach with a former assistant in Sonny Dykes, now the head coach at Cal. Dykes was a graduate assistant alongside Leach at Kentucky, followed him to Texas Tech where he ascended to offensive coordinator. It’s safe to say there are commonalities between the two offenses.
