Sundays are always a quiet day on the Pac-12 college football landscape as teams and reporters alike gear up for another week of press conferences, teleconferences, practices and previews. Still, we've found some links from around the conference to pass along before today's Monday press...

There weren't so many fireworks in Arizona's win over Texas-San Antonio on Thursday and Washington State's loss on Friday was a defensive struggle. But Saturday was a series of shootouts for the Pac-12 and with the exception of the two teams involved in USC's 13-10...

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...

Last night the Mariners and Seahawks of Seattle combined to outscore their opponents 46-18. Today, Washington State has the spotlight and can keep the good Northwestern vibes going with a similar performance in a 7:30 p.m. ESPN game. This will be the Pac-12's weekend and...

There are many connections between the two teams that will face off tomorrow. Linebacker Reggie Coates just transferred from Nevada to Washington State and his new position coach, Ken Wilson, originally recruited him to Reno. Wilson's son still plays for the Wolf Pack as a...

Washington State's roster was updated yesterday to include the walk-ons that joined the team when classes started. There are plenty of new names to file away in case one of them turns into an Elliot Bosch or Luke Falk and contributes for the Cougars. One...

One of the best things to come out of Thursday night's loss was the image of quarterback Connor Halliday rallying the Cougars on the sideline. In the past Halliday has lost his cool, not without reason, but the result is almost never positive. This offseason...

It's Monday and that means the start official start of the Spokesman Review's game week. The Cougars have been thinking about this game since the last one, but we start looking ahead with our weekly First Look at WSU's opponent. The Cougars have just a...

What's the most predictable thing about college football? It's the unpredictability. Jameis Winston hardly looked like a Heisman Trophy winner while defending champion Florida State eked out a win over Oklahoma State, West Virginia gave Alabama all it could handle and who knew Marshawn Lynch...

Some teams still play their games on Saturday and without a Washington State game it's the perfect opportunity to spend a day on the couch flipping between two or three matchups. The Cougars will hold their weekly press availability today so keep an eye out...

Bill Moos had a full day in Seattle yesterday, promoting Washington State athletics as part of Seattle Week leading up to Thursday's game against Rutgers. He did radio, television, and even stopped by the Seattle Times for a live chat. It may be the last...

Today's the first Monday of the 2014 WSU football season, but don't expect the usual press conference. Because the Cougars play on Thursday, they're considering today a Wednesday. Confused? So are we. But hey, we can look forward to Thursday Night Football tomorrow. Links after...

So, about that new Washington State soccer complex … the lights work, so does the drainage system. All the new equipment got a workout last night thanks to some pouring rain and lightning storms that pushed back new WSU soccer coach Steve Nugent's debut by...

Eastern Washington kicks off the college football season in just a couple days and we're only one week away from Cougar football. So what better time to preview the college football season? Are we really starting a new season, however? Or just starting the game-playing...

Destiny Vaeao, Toni Pole and Xavier Cooper probably won't play as much for Washington State this season, and that's a good thing. Why it's a good thing is the subject for our story in today's paper. More links after the jump. *We'll be holding our...

The Washington State coaches value special teams pretty highly. All coaches do to some degree, of course, and all will say that it's a third of the game, etc. Still, many coaches see coverage teams as a place to stick second string players, and save...
