WSU’s Historic Day

While we fight through some technical difficulties to bring you the postgame video interviews (don't worry, they're coming), let's look at some numbers to help put WSU's 44-22 victory over the Golden Bears in perspective. Quarterback Connor Halliday wasn't the only Cougar to put up big numbers, althoug his were certainly the biggest. Check out these statistics compiled by WSU's Bobby Alworth, after the jump.

  • Saturday was WSU's first win over Cal since 2002.
  • WSU scored the most points in a Pac-12 game since putting up 55 on Oregon in 2003.
  • The Cougars have won their first two conference road games in a season for the first time since 2006.
  • WSU has already matched last year's season-total of six rushing touchdowns.
  • Halliday's 41 completions were the second most in WSU history.
  • Halliday's 521 passing yards were the second-most in conference history, behind former WSU quarterback Alex Brink who threw for 531 yards in a loss to Oregon State in 2005.
  • Halliday's 67 attempts are the WSU single-game record.
  • Toni Pole entered the game with zero career fumble recoveries, he left the game with two.
  • Marcus Mason became the first WSU running back with over 100 receiving yards in a game since Deon Burnett in 2000.
  • Vince Mayle's two touchdown receptions brought his career total to four.
  • Ioane Gauta recorded his first two sacks of the season.
  • Teondray Caldwell scored his first career touchdown.
  • Daquawn Brown picked off the second pass of his career.
