WSU, SMU tied at 14 at half


Halftime in Dallas and Washington State is, well, the only word for it is competing. More on the link.


• For the first time in a while against a FBS team Washington State heads into the locker room in the game, tied at 14. In fact, the last time it led was 21-20 in the 2007 Apple Cup game. The Cougars have run the ball well, moved it through the air when needed and made one big special teams play. The Kyle McCartney muffed punt recovery in the end zone allowed the Cougars to head into the locker room tied and on a high. The play was a strange one because Jamal Atofau hit punt returner Darius Johnson early, so Johnson couldn’t catch the Reid Forrest punt. A flag was thrown. But, after the officials talked, it was decided Atofau was blocked into Johnson Robert Mojica and the touchdown stood. … The other score was a jump ball from Jeff Tuel to Jared Karstetter from 4-yards out. … SMU scored on its first drive on Kyle Padron’s scramble, then late in the half on a 67-yard hookup from Padron to Aldrick Robinson, who got behind Tyree Toomer. …
