Cougs need to play at their level rest of way

THE COUGS ARE now in a position, with four regular season games remaining, that the margin for error can fall only one more rung. WSU has to win three of their last four to go bowling. And to do that, they need to do one thing above all else.

Stop playing to the level of their competition. If Washington State plays like they did against Oregon, they will win three of their last four. They might even run the table. But if the Cougs play like they did against Oregon State, UCLA, or for about 50 minutes against Colorado, they're going to struggle. Cal is about as critical as it gets. Lose and the Cougs will have to do what UW did... Recommended Stories
