Four division games left for WSU football team

Four division games left for WSU football team
PULLMAN, WA - The Cougars football team has had an up and down season, and with four games left, they're hoping to make a statement.

And what's even better is the four games that the Washington State Football team will be playing in are all teams in the Pac-12, which could drastically help or hurt their chances of making the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Looking at some of the stats, the Cougs are shining the most in the passing game, as they are ranked sixth in the nation averaging just over 373 yards per game through the air. They also average just under 31 points scored per game, which is good for 57th in the country.

On a negative note, their defense, which started off hot through the first half of the season, is giving up about 30 points per game on average, which ranks them 82nd in the nation. And giving up 52 and 62 points to Oregon and Oregon State respectively in the past two weeks certainly didn't help that average.

Here's Mike Leach on what needs to improve over the next couple weeks.

"I think it's a combination of everything, just be sharp and develop your skills at everything," said WSU Football Head coach Mike Leach. "I mean in our case, what we lack the most is overall experience and so you try to manufacture that between watching films, meetings, practice, that type of thing, and the more you draw out of those things, the more you're gonna make up for your lack of experience and that's what we need to do as much as possible."

The Cougs will bring their experience to take on a tough Arizona State team that's ranked 25th in the nation this Thursday for the Halloween game at Martin Stadium...kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
