From Pullman -- Game day couldn't have gone much better for the Washington State football team. While the defense struggled at times and the Cougars didn't run away with the game, all that seems relatively unimportant after WSU's biggest win in years. The Cougars raced out to a 21-0 lead thanks to big plays from WSU seniors in their final game at Martin Stadium ... And as a mark of how much the Cougars have grown this year, they didn't back down when faced with adversity ... Here's how the teams scored ... And some keys to the game ... This being a newspaper and all, we have a game story.
There is still no guarantee that the Cougars will be invited to a bowl game but fear not, Vince Grippi is willing to stake his entire reputation on it. (But be careful, he also picked the Utes to win.)
John Blanchette's column on the game reads as purdy as a Blanchette column.
It may seem like the earth stood still and watched on Saturday as the Cougars sent home Stanford-slaying Utah home with a whimper. But the world continued to turn and other games were played. All that and more, after the jump.
Oregon 16, Arizona 42
More movement at the top of the conference as Arizona demolished No. 5 Oregon ... The Ducks suffered a number of injuries on defense ... The win puts Stanford back on top of the Pac-12 North ... The Wildcats won with a heroic effort from Ka'Deem Carey.
