If you’re a Coug, Saturday was one of the best days ever, as good as the Saturday at Husky Stadium in 1997 when the Cougars beat the Dawgs to go to the Rose Bowl for the first time in 63 years. WSU knocks off No. 12 Oregon 34-20 to cap big weekend in Pullman ESPN’s College GameDay came to Pullman for the first time, and the Cougs showed up in force, setting an unofficial attendance record for the college football preview road show. If you were there, it had to be one of the best times ever to be a Coug – the country got to see our passion up close. I loved the way they opened the show with Tom Pounds waving the Cougar flag, Ol’ Crimson, in the middle of thousands of Cougs. Pounds started the tradition of Ol’ Crimson appearing on every GameDay show for the past 15 years. It has been a weekly source of pride, waking up and seeing Ol’ Crimson in the background of the set in Ann Arbor, Columbus, Austin or wherever GameDay happened to be. And even if you weren’t there, it was a spectacle to behold: wall-to-wall C

This Monday morning feels a little bit like the Monday after the Super Bowl. With a week of buildup for College GameDay and then the sunrise to sunset spectacle of Saturday, last week felt a little like the culmination of the season. But, a new week is arrived and it turns out the Cougars have another football game to play. And it’s a big one. The No. 14 Cougars will travel to play the No. 24 Stanford. Let’s see what you remember about some recent WSU-Stanford matchups. After a week of not being ranked, Stanford snuck back in the top 25 this week, making it a ranked vs. ranked matchup. Q1: Who was WSU’s starting quarterback the last time the Cougars faced an unranked Stanford team? Gardner Minshew has thrown for at least 300 yards every game this season and has topped 400 four times. Which means he could be in line to break this player’s record. Q2: Since 2000, which WSU quarterback has thrown for the most yards against Stanford in a single game? ***** Football: Grading the Oregon Ducks performance against W

During the first quarter of Saturday’s game between Oregon and Washington State, the Cougars pulled off an absolutely insane play for the contest’s first score. A player lined up well outside of the pocket snapped the ball. He snapped it to the quarterback, who then handed off to running back James Williams. So, the formation was wild — pure Mike Leach. As if that weren’t crazy enough, Williams wiggled out of what appeared to be some sure tackles, working his way all the way into the end zone for the improbable score. This was a truly wild moment, and it put the Cougars up 7-0.

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Gardner Minshew threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Dezmon Patmon in the back of the end zone with 3:40 left and No. 25 Washington State beat No. 12 Oregon 34-20 on Saturday night. The Cougars (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) capped one of the biggest days in program history by taking control of the North Division race. Washington State hosted ESPN’s “College Gameday” and later celebrated its fourth straight victory over Oregon (6-1, 3-1). Minshew was 39 of 51 for 323 yards and four touchdowns. Down 27-0 at the half, Oregon pulled to 27-20 on Adam Stack’s 23-yard field goal with 6:38 left. The Cougars got a huge play on the next drive from Travell Harris when he stole a pass from Oregon’s Jevon Holland for a 37-yard gain into Oregon territory. Minshew then hit Harris for 11 yards to convert fourth-and-6 and, two plays later, Minshew hit Patmon for the touchdown that finally put away the Ducks. Minshew had a pass intercepted by cornerback Deommodore Lenoir to start the game after driving deep into Oregon

The City of Pullman got quite a surprise last Saturday night when ESPN’s “College GameDay” announced it was going to take up temporary residence in Week 8 for the Oregon-Washington State game. Kirk Herbstreit made the announcement, which was significant because the show has never visited Pullman before in its history. It’s a really big deal. It also presents some significant logistical issues for Pullman, which has since declared an emergency to help deal with it all. According to Evan Ellis of Pullman Radio, the Pullman City Council approved the emergency on Tuesday night. It allows Pullman Transit buses to help move fans around campus on Saturday. “WSU officials asked the city for some buses after being unable to find private bus services to accommodate the massive crowd. Longtime Gameday producer and program ‘historian’ Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica says causing an emergency declaration is a first for the show.” It should be a blast.

Mike Leach has never been shy about speaking his mind when something is bothering him, and there is apparently one specific football stat that he can’t keep quiet about any longer. While speaking with the media this week, Leach was asked about the unpopular college rule where sacks count against a quarterback’s rushing yardage. He’s not a fan of that, but he doesn’t feel nearly as strongly about it as he does quarterback efficiency rating. “Over the course of my career it has been explained to me three times, and then I briefly, briefly understand it, but after that it just doesn’t make any sense,” Leach said of QB rating, as transcribed by Doug Samuels of FootballScoop.com. “Because that is utterly useless. Virtually, and completely, and utterly useless.” Leach insists his opinion is shared across football, as he has never come across a single coach who puts any stock into it. “I’m sure it’s a little bit like crossword puzzles and Sudoku because it’s got so many variation that they toss in there, with this

With four ranked-versus-ranked matchups and plenty of other intriguing games on the schedule in college football Week 8, we should be treated to another fabulous weekend of action.

USC lost a potential touchdown during their game against Washington State on Friday night after a controversial call by the officials. Trojans quarterback JT Daniels threw a pass deep in the end zone to Michael Pittman Jr., who caught the ball and tried to get a foot down inbounds. The call on the field from the back judge was incomplete due to Pittman being out of bounds. The call was reviewed and stood. USC then had a 3rd-and-goal with two seconds left before halftime and decided to kick a field goal. The field goal made it 24-17 Washington State at halftime. The replay seemed to be inconclusive, so had the call on the field been a touchdown, it probably would have stood. USC has not gotten too many favorable calls lately, including the safety call that was missed last week against Texas.
