Star of the game
Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel was 20 of 26 for 171 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions — markedly improved from last week.
Play of the game
WSU junior Andrew Furney hit a 60-yard field goal as time ran out in the first half, a boot that trails only Jason Hanson's 62-yarder in 1991.
WSU's transfer punter, Michael Bowlin, averaged 49.6 yards, and the Cougars' net-punting average was a lofty 47.3.
Tuel left early in the fourth quarter with a knee injury, but appeared for postgame interviews and the problem is not thought serious.
He said it
"On all sides of the ball, we're explosive. But we've got to be consistent. We're not good enough to fall flat or go dormant." — Mike Leach.
