Washington State Cougars Topple Nevada 45-7

Washington State Topples Nevada 45-7;...


SIX. THAT WAS THE AGE OF QUARTERBACK LUKE FALK THE LAST TIME THE WASHINGTON STATE COUGARS STARTED OUT 4-0.  IT'S ALSO THE AMOUNT OF DAYS UNTIL THE VAUNTED USC TROJANS COME TO PULLMAN LOOKING TO RUIN THE PERFECT SEASON.  WITH THAT LOOMING IN THE DISTANCE COACH LEACH WAS EXCITED HIS TEAM WAS ABLE TO KEEP IT TOGETHER AND FOCUS ON THE WOLFPACK THIS WEEK.

"I THOUGHT THEY CONCENTRATED ON THE TASK AT HAND.  YOU ALWAY WONDER.  YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE THEM LISTEN TO THE OUTSIDE NOISE.  THE OUTSIDE NOISE, UH, REGARDLESS OF WHO IT IS - NOT JUST YOU GUYS.  I HAVE A PILE OF RELATIVES AND FRIENDS WHO ARE EXPERTS ON EVERY FOOTBALL GAME I'VE EVER BEEN INVOLVED IN - SO YOU GUYS ARE IN GOOD COMPANY."

"YEAH, THE SCHEDULE IS MOVED UP A LITTLE BIT, UH, DEFINITELY GOTTA GET THIS WIN OUT OF OUR SYSTEM.  LIKE NOW.  AND UH - YOU KNOW START WATCHING FILM A LITTLE BIT EARLIER.  I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY'RE GONNA STRUCTURE PRACTICE BUT WE GOTTA GET OUR MIND ON USC NOW. "


"YOU KNOW EVERYONE IN BURBANK IS BASICALLY SC FANS.  I MEAN I MADE IT OUT OF BURBANK - BUT THERE'S GOING TO BE A COUPLE SC PEOPLE GOING "OH WE MAY GO FOR YOU.'  YOU KNOW.  BUT IM DEFINITELY EXCITED TO PLAY THEM I CAN'T WAIT. "

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT,  4-0 VS 4-0 ON THE FINAL LEG OF THIS FIVE-GAME HOMESTAND TO START THE 2017 REGULAR SEASON... FRIDAY NIGHT, IN FRONT OF A NATIONAL AUDIENCE.
