Luke Falk comes up clutch to lift WSU over Rutgers

2-minute drill

1 Keep Carroo in front. The Scarlet Knights run the ball more often than not. If the ground game has success, it will be difficult for WSU’s defensive backs to not let their eyes wander over to the Rutgers RBs. Playmaking receiver Leonte Carroo is too good at tracking and securing the football, and too good at sprinting away from defenders for the Cougars to keep him out of the end zone if he gets behind the defense. 2 Maintain gap integrity. There is an easy way to tell if WSU’s defense is doing its job against the Scarlet Knights: If you see two players in white jerseys occupying roughly the same area, that’s a problem. Against Portland State, WSU defenders frequently covered the same gap and Vikings ball carriers found and exploited the resulting open spaces. You can bet Rutgers will do the same.

Cougars expect their best against Rutgers

There are plenty of reasons to think Washington State could come out and beat Rutgers and end the season’s second week with a 1-1 record that prior to the season most fans would have considered reasonable, if not particularly exciting.

WSU football: Rutgers WR Leonte Carroo provides haymakers

PULLMAN – Leonte Carroo’s first-play touchdown against Washington State in the Seattle season-opener last year became an iconic moment, not only for the loss, but for the Cougars’ struggles defending passes all season. It was a routine play for Carroo, practically a tradition, since he has now scored a touchdown on his first catch in each of the last three seasons. So far this year all three of his receptions have ended in touchdowns, giving the senior a school-record 22 touchdown catches over 24 games (he played only special teams as a freshman).

Coach Mele’s family, friends will be out to support Cougs at Rutgers
