“We sucked,” said wide receiver Gabe Marks. “Our offense was horrible today. It was our fault.”
WSU’s offense played as poorly as it has since Luke Falk became the quarterback, an era ago, and when faced with the opportunity for redemption instead made a decisive mistake.
There were just more than three minutes left in Tuesday’s Holiday Bowl matchup against Minnesota, and the Cougars faced fourth down on a drive in which they had to have a touchdown.
Falk scrambled around and let loose a throw across his body that was intercepted by Minnesota defensive back Adekunle Ayinde, who seemed to return the pass for a touchdown. Officials ruled that Ayinde stepped out of bounds, but that was little consolation for the WSU offense as it watched the Golden Gophers run off some clock and score a touchdown that proved decisive.
