A lose looking Connor Halliday, (QB) arrived at Martin Stadium flashing deuces to excited Cougar fans. Perhaps an early victory sign as Washington State went on to shut out the University of Idaho 42-0 in a game that left the Cougs sitting at 3-1 early in its season.
Halliday was off to an early start hitting Gabe Marks for a quick TD strike in the first quarter. The Cougar offense was just warming up as Halliday hit receivers Don Williams, Vince Mayle, and Gabe Marks for 3 additional second quarter touchdowns. WSU went into to the half leading 28-0 with Idaho looking for answers.
In the second half, the Cougars went to the ground with RB Jeremiah Laufassa rushing for a 3rd quarter TD and then another TD in the 4th to put the Cougs up 42-0. WSU closed out the game with a 4-down goal stand against Idaho that left both WSU and Idaho head coaches exchanging F-You’s in a bizarre meeting after the game.
Washington State 3-1- heads to Seattle next week to take on Stanford at Century Link stadium in its annual home/away game. While Stanford is an early 10-point favorite, the Cougs are confident in their underdog status and their ability to beat the Cardinal.
