Post-game fireworks as Cougs blast Idaho 42-0

PETRINO AND LEACH GOT INTO IT AFTER GAME

WASHINGTON STATE FOUGHT TO the very end with an inspired goal-line stand, ensuring an Idaho goose egg would remain on the scoreboard in the 42-0 shellacking. It was the first shutout for the Cougars in 10 years -- and the fireworks continued after the clock had struck zeros.

Idaho coach Paul Petrino had words and what looked like an overly exuberant handshake for Mike Leach at the end of the Cougs' shutout victory.

If you can read lips, it wasn't hard to tell what Leach said in reply and it can't be repeated here. Sadly, the Pac-12 Network cut away from what looked to be an ongoing and perhaps an escalating conversation.

On the field, the Cougar D was dominating, with double-digit tackles for loss and preventing Idaho from reaching the red zone until late into the fourth quarter.

Connor Halliday rifled four touchdown passes and running back Jeremiah Laufasa posted two rushing touchdowns.
