If you looked through the play-by-play of a Washington State game during the past three years, the term "loss of" would become very repetitive. Rushed for a loss of XX yards, sacked for a loss of XX yards. It was everywhere. Even in their win against Oregon State last year, WSU lost yardage on ten plays.
If you search the play-by-play from Saturday's win, the only time you will see "loss of" will be on Idaho State plays. No sacks, no negative rushing plays. Pretty amazing when you think about it.
Another interesting note from the final stats, freshman Marcus Mason, not Rickey Galvin or Logowone Mitz led the Cougars in rushing. This leads me right into the Monday morning trivia question. Who was the last true freshman to lead WSU in rushing in the first game of the season?
