Washington State plays Colorado in an NCAA college football game at Martin Stadium in Pullman on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017.
Normal is underrated. The proof was in the long week at Washington State that technically started a few hours early with the berserk unraveling in Berkeley – the by-now-almost-annual inexplicable face-plant that is as much a part of the Mike Leach era as his manufactured idylls on space life and boat-naming.
Following Washington State’s first loss of the season at California, the Cougars returned to Martin Stadium on Saturday night trying to avoid a second.
Despite wet and windy conditions, Washington State was able to reignite its potent passing game and Luke Falk threw three touchdown passes to lift the Cougars to a 28-0 win over Colorado at Martin Stadium.
