From The Heavens — David's shot missed its mark last night and Goliath, Oregon, pummeled the Cougs in a 62-38 victory. It was a dishonorable defeat for WSU, according to an Oregon assistant, who was apparently miffed at the insubordination the Cougars showed by not spending the fourth quarter having quarterback Connor Halliday kneel down to run out the clock while the rest of the team applauded the Ducks in awestruck wonder. The nerve.
Granted, WSU kept its pedal to the metal throughout the game, even though not much went right when they did. It was a sloppy game for both teams, and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota coughed up his first two turnovers of the year.
