Grading the cougars: D


Passing offense: D

There was little time to throw at the start and too few completions throughout.

Rushing offense: C+

Considering the youth up front, rushing for more than 100 yards was pretty good.

Passing defense: D+

Pressure was rare and way too many open receivers.

Rushing defense: F

The numbers tell the story: 318 yards, 5.4 yard per carry, six touchdowns.

Special teams: C

A muffed punt set up the TD, but another missed PAT and poor decisions on kickoffs.

Coaching: D

Only the injuries, and the resultant restraints, saved this from being lower.
