Pullman -

Cougars head football coach Mike Leach said during his Monday press conference that senior Jeff Tuel will get the first team reps at quarterback throughout the bye week.

Tuel replaced sophomore Connor Halliday, who was benched after throwing two early interceptions in the 31-17 loss to Cal. That loss dropped WSU to 2-5 on the season and 0-4 in Pac-12 play.

Washington State takes the field again on Saturday, 10/27 at Stanford. The game is a 3:15 p.m. kick-off on KXLY 920 and the Pac-12 Network.
