HOT COUGAR ACTION: Can WSU Break The ASU Winning Streak?

Is it just me or did anyone else not realize WSU has lost seven straight games to ASU? Sure there have been some recent frustrating losses, but seven straight? All that will come to a end tomorrow and here are three reasons why.

1. Last season more than a few people thought the Cougs might beat ASU. They then got trounced 42-0. This season 77 percent of you are picking ASU. Based on the latest CougCenter polling data, teams picked to win in the weekly poll lose 100 percent of the time by an average score of 30-7. Suck on those numbers Sun Devils!

2. Arizona State has an all-time record of 2-3 in games played in Pullman during the month of November. They already have a 60 percent chance of losing the minute they step off the plane.

3. WSU is 6-3-2 in their last 11 games played on November 12. Bowl eligible without even needing to play 12 games. Sparky picked the wrong day to mess with the Cougs.
