WSU falters at Nevada

Well, that was unexpected. Sure, there were Washington State partisans that figured winning at Nevada would be a tall task. Even the always faithful Jim Moore called the upset. But those pundits imagined the Cougars coming up just short in a shootout. I don't think anybody saw WSU's offense putting up only a field goal in the second half.

Here is our game story from the loss and our scoring summary. We also have video of Mike Leach and Connor Halliday addressing reporters after the game, which didn't end until around 11 p.m. Here are some of my final thoughts from the game. Bud Withers has a column from the game. Nevada is understandably pretty excited about its defense's performance.
