Play of the Game

WSU's redshirt freshman running back, Rickey Galvin, broke over the right side only 2 ½ minutes into the game, found daylight and outraced a couple of Rebels defenders to the end zone for a 48-yard scoring run.

Turning Point

The Cougars had a 14-0 lead before the Rebels had even run their fourth offensive play.

Key Stat

For the second week in a row, the Cougars defense shut out an opponent in the first half.

Injury report

WSU: No new injuries reported.

Quotable

"I feel this is the year. We're tired of losing. We want to turn this program around and go to a bowl game," WSU defensive tackle Anthony Laurenzi said.
