1994 BUILDER SQUARE ALAMO BOWL
 
 
The Washington State offense scored on the opening drive of the game and on the last play of the second quarter to provide all the points the Cougar defense needed as WSU held off Baylor's late challenge in a 10-3 win at the second annual Builders Square Alamo Bowl before a crowd of 44,106. Despite some anxious moments in the closing seconds of the game, the Cougar defense made those 10 points stand up by limiting the record-setting Bear offense to eight first downs, 151 yards in total offense and just one field goal. The Cougars did something against Baylor they had not done all season, take the opening kickoff and drive the length of the field for a touchdown. The drive totaled 91 yards, equaling the longest scoring drive of the season, and ended when Kevin Hicks busted through the left side of the line from one yard out to put WSU on top 7-0. The score came six minutes, 32 seconds after the kickoff. WSU's offense provided three more points just before halftime to give the Cougs a 10-0 lead at intermission. Taking the ball after Baylor's Jarvis VanDyke missed his second field goal attempt of the first half, WSU drove from its own 30-yard line to the Baylor 20-yard line, where Tony Truant banged home a 37-yard field goal with two seconds left in the first half. A sideline pass to Jay Dumas for a key first down, then another similar pass to Albert Kennedy put the ball in perfect position for Truant. Davis, named the game's most valuable offensive player, hit six of eight passes on the drive. Davis, who completed 27 of 35 passes for 286 yards, gave Cougar fans a few anxious minutes in the third quarter when he took a hard blow to the back while scrambling out of the pocket. He was able to return one play later and finished the game. Defensively, WSU was especially tough in the first half. Baylor came into the game averaging nearly 33 points per game and 382.4 yards per contest. In the first half WSU's defense, led by the game's most valuable defensive player, Ron Childs, limited the Bears to just 41 net yards, 24 rushing and 17 passing. Childs had 10 tackles in the game, including eight solo, of which two were for negative yardage. Only on its last possession did Baylor come close to the WSU endzone, where Todd Jensen, a senior who backed up John Rushing all year, picked off a Jeff Watson pass to halt any Baylor hope of scoring. The bowl victory was WSU's second in the last three years and third in seven years. Joining Childs defensively were Chris Hayes with seven tackles, Mark Fields with six and Chad Eaton with five. Fields and Eaton combined for WSU's only sack, while Torey Hunter also had an interception.
