WSU trails 21-10 at half


Really, could Washington State ask for much more? Sure, the Cougars are down by 11 points. And Martin Stadium is empty. But WSU is keeping it closer than anyone could have imagined. With only about 14 healthy bodies on defense, one of whom, Brandon Jones, was injured in the first quarter and another who it was counting on, Jay Matthews, not suited up with his shoulder injury. That opened the door for Easton Johnson, who was on offense until Wednesday. That’s when he moved back to safety. He’s made at least five tackles by my count. No matter what happens the rest of the way, this might have been the Cougars’ most impressive half.
