Washington State kicker Erik Powell connected on three field goals, none bigger than his 32-yarder that gave the Cougars a 30-27 lead with 1:40 remaining.

Powell earlier made field goals of 44 and 33 yards. The senior is 8 of 9 on the season – his lone miss was blocked by Oregon State – and he’s made 17 of his last 19 dating back to last season.

Powell missed his first five attempts at the outset of the 2016 season before rebounding to finish strong. His 39 career field goals ranks fifth on WSU’s all-time list.
