BOULDER, Colo. – Washington State’s eight-game winning streak ended with the 38-24 loss to No. 12 Colorado on Saturday, but the 20th-ranked Cougars still put up some superlative numbers. Here are a few of the impressive feats performed by WSU players in Boulder:

  • John Thompson made his first start this season at Y-receiver, filling in for the injured River Cracraft. He finished with two reception for 10 yards and a touchdown.
  • Gabe Marks had six catches for 46 yards, giving him 301 recetions over his career. He is the 13th receiver in NCAA FBS history with 300 or more catches.
