WSU did not disappoint on road win against USC
PULLMAN, WA - Everyone was expecting a great game when the Washington State Cougars Football team traveled to Southern California this past weekend to take on the USC Trojans, and that's exactly what they got!

Let's jump to the fourth quarter in a tie-game, Washington state has the ball, quarterback Halliday looks left and quick tosses to Dom Williams with the wide receiver screen, and Williams is going to break a few tackles before breaking loose along the left sideline and is eventually going to be chased down after a gain of 49 yards.

And that's going to set up kicker Andrew Furney for the 41-yard field goal...and the sure foot of Furney hits it for three points, and the Cougs go up 10-7.

USC gets the ball back with just over two minutes, quarterback Max Wittek throws left, and Damante Horton is going to seal this game for the Cougs with the big interception, and out of nowhere, the WSU Cougars are suddenly in first place in the Pac-12 north with a 10-7 win over USC. Head coach Mike Leach talks about what he saw in the game.

"I thought the biggest thing was their defensive line play," said Leach. "I thought our offensive line played very courageously, I thought they played very hard. I thought our whole team played very hard, It was just hard to get into a rhythm. I thought they were very disruptive, but I thought our d-line was very disruptive to them."

The Cougs have already put this big upset behind them as they prepare to take on Southern Utah this Saturday for their first home game of the season. Kickoff is set for 3:30 at Martin Stadium.
