Jahad Woods

The redshirt freshman linebacker was one of the lone bright spots for Washington State as the Cougars suffered their worst defensive outing of the year. Woods was third on the team with five tackles, but three of those were for-loss. He also snared the first interception of his career in the third quarter.

Tavares Martin Jr.

Coming off a one-game suspension, the Cougars’ leading receiver had one of his best statistical games of the year, hauling in 11 passes for 136 yards. Both of those were team-highs on a night that saw 11 different players make one catch and nine of them make two or more.

Tay Martin

Last week, the true freshman outside receiver had his first touchdown catch. Saturday, Martin added two more. The Houma, Louisiana, native had three catches for 67 yards in the game. He had an 8-yard TD grab in the third quarter and a 49-yard grab in the fourth quarter – both of which came from Tyler Hilinski.
