Tuesday WSU practice report

From Pullman — The Washington State defense carried the day during what may have been WSU's shortest practice of the year, harassing scout-team quarterback Tyler Bruggman and looking sharp heading into Friday's Apple Cup. The Cougars' defense took a page from the Seahawks' book, ending practice with a “We all we got, we all we need!” chant.

Quarterback Connor Halliday was sharp on offense, going 18 of 20 during the 11-on-11 session and backup Austin Apodaca completed all 10 of his reps. 

More from practice after the jump.


On the defensive side, strong safety Taylor Taliulu showed no lingering signs of his injury suffered against Arizona, making an athletic interception near the sideline. Cornerback Nolan Washington made an interception as well, continuing the solid play that has had him start the past two games and see a majority of the snaps. Freshman Daquawn Brown took Washington's job in the middle of the season, but the senior has seemingly reclaimed his spot.

“I think they're improving, we're steadily getting better,” Leach said. “I think we're playing better now than we have. We've progressively gotten better all year.”

Tomorrow will be WSU's last normal practice before crossing the Cascades to take on their instate rivals. Before that the team will celebrate Thanksgiving with a meal and a bowling competition.
