UA at WSU, First Quarter


The questions about the special teams were answered in the positive during the first quarter, which ended with WSU up 10-7 – but UA on the march.

Punter Daryl Blunt punted once, and hit a boomer. His 55-yarder might have been too good, as the WSU coverage broke down and Blunt had to tackle Syndric Steptoe 39 yards downfield. If that didn't get his heart racing, nothing will.

And Romeen Abdollmohamadi converted an extra point, a field goal and had two kickoffs sail into the end zone.

But other questions cropped up, like is the defense really here and can the Cougars run the ball? We'll keep an eye on them.
