After struggling to get anything going offensively for much of the first half, Washington State's offense broke through and the Cougars now lead the Apple Cup 10-3.
WSU took over at its 9-yard line, but reeled off a 13-play 91-yard touchdown drive. Connor Halliday found some success through the air, but the Cougars were also able to pick up some yards on the ground. Marcus Mason got things going early, picking up a first down on a 3rd-and-1. Teondray Caldwell was able to break through a few plays later with a 20-yard rush, moving the Cougars into Husky territory.
The Cougars picked up another chunk of yards on a beautiful screen pass to Caldwell. The drive nearly stalled with Elliott Bosch appeared to snap the ball early. Halliday, however, recovered and ran for a yard, converting the 3rd-and-1. He hit Rickey Galvin on the next play for a beautiful 14-yard touchdown pass.
Washington has given WSU the numbers to run, but the Cougars hadn't checked to many runs early on. That changed on this drive and the result is a seven-point Cougar lead.
