Washington State is only 4-4 heading into its first bye week of the season, but coach Mike Leach says he is not too disappointed.
The Cougars’ losses are to No. 2 Oregon, No. 8 Stanford, No. 11 Auburn and Oregon State — teams with a combined record of 25-3.
The Cougars have played eight straight weeks to open the season, leaving players a bit banged up.
WSU doesn’t even get the benefit of a full 13 days off, returning to action Thursday, Oct. 31, against Arizona State. Players resume practice Thursday.
