Stanford prep continues

WSU Athletic Communications

WSU went through another practice on Wednesday with Saturday's game approaching.

WSU is playing the No. 5 team in the country on Saturday, but the volleyball team may have drawn more attention on Wednesday. The Cougars lost to No. 2 Washington, with more than 1,800 people in attendance.

Before the volleyball team took the court, the football team went through another practice. They'll have one more full practice on Thursday before travel and walkthroughs are the only thing left before Saturday's game. According to Christian, Justin Sagote, Peyton Pelluer and Brett Bartolone were limited in practice on Wednesday. Stanford week is not the time to be without one of your starting linebackers.

Also, this was a thing that happened:

Stanford's offensive line has taken a major hit with the sudden departure of All-American left guard David Yankey, a junior from Roswell, GA. Yankey is not hurt or suspended from the team, rather he has returned home to deal with what's being called a "family situation," and he is not expected to be back in time for this weekend's game against Washington State.
