Washington State learned that last year when a commendable 34-24 halftime deficit turned into a 24-point blowout in less than 6 minutes.

Still, it would be a mistake to write off the Cougars in their Pac-12 opener against the Ducks. For some reason, UO has had some motivation problems lately and struggles to give its best in games that are not being played on the biggest of stages.
