Do the Cougars Have Hope? Washington State Preview & Prediction

Only an Apple Cup victory somewhat salvaged a dissappointing first season for Mike Leach at Washington State. There are tons of skill position players coming back including QB Connor Halliday (52%, 15 TD, 13 INT), WR's Brett Bartolone (54 Rec, 435 Yards, 4 TD), Gabe Marks (49-560-2), Isaiah Myers (41-418-4), Dominique Williams (34-546-3) and Bobby Ratliff (30-398). On defense, WSU brings back 18 of its 21 most productive players including Xavier Cooper (8.5 TFL), Ioane Gauta (8.5 TFL), Darryl Moore (8.5 TFL, 3 Sacks) and All-Pac 12 Deone Bucannon (85 Tackles, 4 INT, 3 TFL).
