Washington State didn’t move much, but keeps hanging around in the top-25 The Washington State Cougars continue to hang around in the polls, holding tight at No. 15 in the AP and No. 16 in the Coaches Poll. Washington State took care of business on Saturday night, shutting out Colorado in a driving rain in Pullman, 28-0. Despite the easy win, though, Washington State didn’t move much in the polls — the rest of the week was mostly chalk. Washington State is the second-highest ranked Pac-12 team, coming in a few spots behind Washington. The Huskies are 12th in the AP Poll and 11th in the Coaches after sitting idle this week. Stanford is 20th in both polls and comes to Pullman in two weeks in a matchup that’s shaping up to be massive. USC, which was blown out of the playoff picture by Notre Dame is 21st in both polls. This is the last week without playoff rankings, which will be released a week from this coming Tuesday. The Associated Press Top 25 Alabama Penn State Georgia TCU Wisconsin Ohio State

Washington State downed Colorado, 28-0, Saturday night in the Palouse. WSU starting quarterback Luke Falk (17-of-34, 197 yards and 3 TD) set two Pac-12 records in the contest: Total offense (1,824, USC’s Carson Palmer) and pass attempts (1,838, OSU’s Sean Mannion). Falk also became the winningest QB in Washington State history (25 wins). Colorado sophomore Steven Montez struggled through the worst start of his young career, going 4-for-13 and just 21-yard first half that saw him benched at halftime. Redshirt freshman Sam Noyer came on in the second half, but was only slightly better — 7-for-18 for 53 yards. Neither were able to get the Buffs into the end zone, producing CU’s first shutout loss since 2012 (48-0 vs. Stanford).

BOULDER – On a cold, rainy night in Pullman, Washington, the Colorado Buffaloes found themselves on the wrong end of a  shutout for the first time since 2012. The Washington State Cougars put on a dominant Pac-12 show, holding the Buffs to 174 total yards in an ugly offensive performance that saw starting quarterback Steven Montez benched in favor of backup Sam Noyer. The 28-point loss sent the Buffs back to Boulder with a 4-4 record and little breathing room remaining in their hunt for a bowl game. Perhaps the biggest story of the night was the change at quarterback as CU entered the second half with a different signal-caller at the helm. Backup Noyer took the field to start the third quarter, a startling adjustment to the Buffs offensive strategy. “Yeah, Steven wasn’t getting it done, he wasn’t making the reads,” head coach Mike MacIntyre said after the game. “Sam came in and did okay. He should have done better than he did, especially that fourth down play he threw it in the dirt. That would have been a bi

Washington State will be without leading receiver Tavares Martin Jr. for its game on Saturday against Colorado.Martin broke a team rule, leading to his suspension. The junior wide receiver threw a tantrum after the team’s upset loss to Cal last Friday. He also missed practice.“He was a little angry, saying things hadn’t gone his way the last couple of games. He broke a team rule and needs to be punished for that,” the receiver’s father, Tavares Martin Sr, told The Seattle Times. “He just made a mistake, and he had to pay a price for it. It was a miscommunication between him and the coaches. He was upset. He said he felt like he should have been more involved in that game.”Martin was seen addressing his teammates after a practice this week. He apparently apologized to head coach Mike Leach as well as his teammates.He tweeted the following message on Thursday: Martin has 37 catches for a team-leading 507 yards and seven touchdowns this season. He had just 3 catches for 38 yards in the loss to Cal.

What was expected to be a rather straightforward weekend of college football turned into a carnage on Saturday as upset after upset went down across the country. We watched as a trio of unbeatens fell, all of whom had been in the top ten — Clemson, Washington, and Washington State. Another highly-ranked team in Auburn went down in a shocking defeat as well.There’s a lot to sift through with the polls this week — and be warned, the coaches did not have the greatest week.Why Penn State over Georgia at No. 2?Clemson’s loss meant there was a vacuum behind Alabama for No. 2 in the nation, and there were two real obvious candidates — the unbeaten Penn State Nittany Lions and the Georgia Bulldogs. There’s a strong argument for both, but ultimately, it’s Georgia who has the better wins. The Nittany Lions have yet to knock off a ranked opponent, while Georgia’s road win at Notre Dame looks more and more impressive with each passing week. This will all be moot soon enough — Penn State’s next three games are against Mic

Washington State’s College Football Playoff hopes were all but dashed Friday with an upset loss to Cal, and head coach Mike Leach was none too forgiving.After the blowout 37-3 defeat, Leach ripped his team as “pathetic frontrunners” and said there was “no bright spot,” per the Seattle Times. The Cougars entered Friday’s game 6-0 on the season and ranked No. 8 in the country. That made the manhandling at the hands of Cal, who came in with a record of 3-3 and zero total wins in conference play this season, all the more stunning. As for Leach, he has always been one to tell it like it is, and a dream-crushing rout by a mediocre opponent will certainly bring out that side of him.

The Washington State-Cal game is being played in Berkley, Calif. Friday night, despite some heavy smoke in the area caused by wildfires in the region.Fans were wearing masks to protect their lungs against the smoke, as were workers attending the game. The stands weren’t exactly full of fans for this Pac-12 after dark matchup, either. And it’s not hard to understand why. There are wildfires raging in the region, and thousands of lives have been inexorably altered. To date, 34 people have been killed in the Northern California blazes, with an estimated 5,700 structures destroyed, per the Los Angeles Times.There was some debate about whether to move this game to a different location. In the end, however, the Pac-12 decided to keep the game in Berkley. We just hope the air doesn’t hurt the players out there exerting themselves to the max. For those who might be interested in what that Air Quality Index score of 162 means, according to the EPA, anything over 150 is unhealthy.
