This Week In Cougar Athletics History
Led by Richard Calvinís 117 yards rushing, WSU turned to its ground game to beat Arizona, 45-28, at Martin Stadium.
WSU, which had averaged just 82 rushing yards per game in its four previous contests, gained 180 yards on the ground and scored three rushing touchdowns, all by Steve Broussard. Two of Broussardís touchdowns came in the first quarter to put WSU up 14-0, and the Cougars never looked back.
Sophomore quarterback Timm Rosenbach completed 25 of 31 passes for 324 yards and one touchdown.

The 13th ranked Cougars defeated No. 3 Stanford in four games (15-6, 11-15, 15-7, 17-15) to capture their first ever win over the Cardinal.
In defeating Stanford for the first time in 22 tries, the Cougars also broke Stanfordís string of 33 consecutive conference victories. The last time Stanford lost a league match was Nov. 4, 1994 when UCLA won in five games at Pauley Pavilion.
Sarah Silvernail, who went on to earn Pac-10 Player of the Year and first team All-American honors, registered 23 kills and 13 digs.
"You have to give a lot of credit to a lot of women that have a lot of guts and a lot of stay-together," WSU Head Coach Cindy Fredrick said. "They were amazing. I have never seen a team fight so hard and I have never seen a team play so smart."
