From Pullman -- The Cougars didn't practice yesterday but will return to the field this afternoon. My story in today's paper focuses on how the Washington State's coaches have used the bowl practices up to get extra time with young players and improve for next season ... We go back in time to 1916 and take a look at WSU's first bowl game ... John Blanchette has a feature on Colorado State coach Jim McElwain, who hails from Spokane ... The Cougars continue to rack up the offensive tackle recruits.
