Portland State Vikings
Connor Halliday, the nation’s leading passer, threw for 544 yards and six touchdowns as Washington State beat Portland State 59-21.
Beaten, battered and perhaps a little embarrassed on the Bayou, Washington would seem to have the perfect remedy coming to town. But don’t tell Portland State it is supposed to be a sacrificial cure for the Huskies’ woes. They just need to point out the handful of victories teams from the Big Sky Conference, of the Football Championship Subdivision, already have over their upper-tier foes this season for proof they don’t plan to be any sort of pushover.
