Although it is hard to believe, tonight's game may have been even more one-sided than the final score shows. The Cougars moved to 5-0 with the 84-36 victory in a game they controlled from start to finish. Although the contest was no thriller, the fans who trekked through the snowy conditions were able to see some of the new faces, as 11 members of the WSU squad contributed to the team's 84 points.

Nearly 19 years ago, Mike Utley was carried off the Pontiac Silverdome Field. In the just released Winter 2010 issue of Washington State Magazine read about the momentous progress the Cougar Football great is making toward achieving his goal to walk off the home field of the Detroit Lions, now Ford Field.
Pictured below is Mike with his new Ford F-350 pickup. The vehicle represents a significance far beyond a means of transportation for Mike. Read why HERE. And for more information on the Mike Utley Foundation visit mikeutley.org

The Cougars hosted Gonzaga in their lone home regatta of the Fall, Head of the Snake, Friday at Wawawai Landing on the Snake River. The Cougars wore all pink as part of Washington State Athletics' part in Breast Cancer Awareness month. The water down at the Snake River was ideal for the event, especially after last year's windy event. WSU's first, second and third varsity boats finished ahead of Gonzaga's first varsity eight crew in the main event. We have some video of the Cougs in their pink below.
The Cougars held a Crimson and Gray Scrimmage Friday night at Bohler Gym. The WSU offense was on display as it shot 41 percent from beyond the 3-point arc on the night. You can read all about the event HERE. Check out photos from the event as well HERE.
