PULMAN, WA - Over on the Washington side of the border where the WSU Cougars are on a hot, winning streak and are currently number one in the Pac-12 North in this young football season.

After losing a close one to Auburn in week one, the Cougars took down once mighty USC in week two then blew out Southern Utah last week in their first home game.

Quarterback Connor Halliday could easily pass the 1,000 yard passing mark tomorrow. After three games, he's thrown for 942 yards and six touchdowns. As for the battle for the Palouse, Head Coach Mike Leach doesn't care who his team plays as he just looks to win.

"Don't care one way or another; they're a good opponent and all that,” said Leach. “Enjoy playing them, you know. I think it's difficult to say ‘cause Idaho’s independent so right now we have the opportunity to get some games when a lot of dates may match up, if they get into a conference then it may be more difficult."

A game is a game to Coach Leach, and he looks to take down any opponent that's in his team's way, cross-town rival or not.

All the action kicks-off at 7:30 p.m. at Martin Stadium. Don't miss the 0-3 Vandals taking on the 2-1 Cougars!
