How important is the kicking game?
The Cougars, seemingly in control early, miss a 37-yard field goal.
The Bruins, seemingly inspired, come through with two big Patrick Cowan pass plays: 24 yards to Marcus Everett and 28 on a screen to Chris Markey. Then they stall. But Justin Medlock comes through for them from, yep, you guessed it, 37 yards.
It's not just the field goals (which made it 3-0 UCLA) but also the kick offs as well. The Cougars first try, out of bounds and UCLA starts at the 35. The Bruins get it deep and WSU starts at the 14.
Also, did anyone else notice Charles Harris (55) is playing right tackle, matching up with Justin Hickman and Bobby Byrd (70) is on the left side? Davis has beaten Byrd twice, including a hard-inside rush on the last possession.
