    wsu’s defense made things hell for uw rookie quarterback sam huard, who had just 190 yards, 55 of them in one play, with one touchdown and four interceptions. You could argue that Huard threw for two touchdowns, but one went to the WSU defense. Armani Marsh had two interceptions including the pick-six, Derrick Langford had one and Justus Rogers had a key interception deep in WSU territory.

    wsu scored on his opening drive when max borghi ran from 32 yards. That series started poorly, with wsu stalling on his first two plays before de laura connected with donovan ollie on a big third-down conversion.

    The Cougs followed up with two field goals to make it 0-13, and while that was good, you don’t win by kicking field goals, which caused some anxiety in my household at least. UW got on the board with a nice 10-yard Kamari TD with 1:31 left in the first half. uw got good field position on that drive thanks to an unsportsmanlike penalty on wsu at kick-off.

    wsu used a 10-play drive to reach the end zone in the third quarter when borghi ran untouched from 1 yard out, giving wsu a 20-7 lead.

    derrick langford intercepted a pass from sam huard to set up wsu’s next points, a 41-yard field goal by dean janikowski.

    It looked like uw might have something going on their next possession when sam huard connected with rome odunze on a 55-yard completion. but with his team at the door, huard dumped him into the hands of bellevue’s own justus rogers who returned to uw territory. WSU used seven plays to set up a two-yard touchdown run from Deon McIntosh, and the road was on. Learn more about the upcoming McIntosh celebration.

    uw scored on his next possession and wsu responded with another field goal. On UW’s second play of his ensuing possession, Armani Marsh earned his second interception of the night and returned it home for a pour.

    the 27 point margin of victory was absolutely satisfying and the wsu fans wasted no time storming the field. and laura jayden may have made a good case for a statue in pullman when she did this :

    now, the cougars await their fate in the bowl.

    go ahead.

    random thoughts

    • ok those unsportsmanlike penalties on mcintosh and laura: mcintosh hit butch t. Cougar a big hug after a touchdown run and who can blame him? Apparently that’s against the rules. After a key first-down fight, Laura struck a pose as a centerfold model and was grounded. both were innocent plays, and I don’t blame the referees. Rules dictate call those in or they’ll be refereeing an Arizona-Cal game next season. Calm down, rule makers.
    • have a day, donovan ollie. the third-year receiver stood out throughout the game after a quiet outing against arizona.
    • how mad is dylan morris?
    • im excited for the wsu seniors, particularly by in- state boys. rogers, marsh, abe lucas, etc. Marsh’s pick-six came from the hands of Devin Culp, his high school teammate at Gonzaga Prep.
    • That “invalid signal” call was probably correct under the rule, but one i had never seen.
