THERE WERE A lot of smiles in the post-game press conferences after Washington State dismantled…
What They're Saying: WSU thrashes SUU edition
Now this is progress. John Blanchette, Spokesman-Review SUU proved playing an FBS opponent didn't (faze) them against Southern Alabama to start the season. However, Washington State provided a whole new set of challenges. Bryson Lester, SUU News In truth, Connor Halliday performed better over the first two weeks against rugged defenses than his five interceptions and one touchdown pass would indicate. On this day, he left no room for interpretation... Bud Withers, Seattle Times But the "dink-and-dunk" method only works so long against a capable secondary. And when Aaron Cantu needed to challenge that WSU secondary, it proved to be a game-changer. Chris Chancellor, Cougfan.com Gildan New Mexico: Washington State vs. MWC Ted Miller, ESPN.com After failing to score an offensive touchdown in an upset of Southern California last weekend, Washington State had the best offensive performance of the Mike Leach era in a 48-10 win over Southern Utah on Saturday. Nicholas K. Geranios, Associated Press Southern Utah went nearly two-and-a-half games without turning the ball over in 2013 but when the Thunderbirds finally did it cost them. Boxscorenews.com The Cougars' decided edge in speed and athleticism exposed Southern Utah's secondary in glaring fashion. Howie Stalwick, Cougfan.com WSU held Southern Utah to 219 yards. With the 193 USC totaled last week, it's the first time the Cougars have held consecutive opponents under 225 yards since the Palouse Posse did it in 1994. That year, Washington had 197 yards in the Apple Cup won by WSU and Baylor had 151 in the Alamo Bowl. Bud Withers, Seattle Times Yes, this is what's supposed to happen in Food Chain Football, when the big, bad Pac-12 shark invites some FCS krill for a payday and a pounding.
