Early holds: The WSU defense forced three-and-outs on each of Stanford’s first two drives and forced the Cardinal to punt on its third. By holding early, the defense gave the WSU offense a chance to find its rhythm and score first, giving the Cougars the upper hand throughout the game.

Missed kick: Stanford had a chance to make it a one-score game heading into halftime. But Conrad Ukropina’s kick bounced off the left upright and back out to the eight-yard line, preserving WSU’s multi-score lead.

Finishing move: Luke Falk’s touchdown pass to Gabe Marks came on the heels of consecutive false starts, and a blow to the head that knocked Falk out for one play on the same drive. But Falk found Marks in the back of the end zone, giving WSU a decisive three-touchdown lead.
