The offense and the defense, in tandem, for the first time this season. Jeff Tuel helped WSU overcome 10 sacks by completing 43 of his 60 pass attempts, taking advantage of a stellar defensive effort that gave the Cougars a chance to win. Stanford managed just 120 rushing yards on 37 carries, failing to exert its will on a WSU team that was overpowered by California two weeks ago.
