HOT COUGAR ACTION: Will WSU Keep Its Bowl Hopes Alive?

If you are a regular visitor to CougCenter, you may have noticed the last two weeks I've posted a mid week poll asking you to predict the outcome of the weeks game. As it turns out, CougCenter's power is further reaching than I thought and the results of the poll actually dictate the outcome of the game. Take a look for yourself.

Prior to the California game, 66 percent of you picked the Cougs to win. They lost 30-7.

Last week 77 percent of you thought ASU would be the victor. They got Halliday'd 37-27.

One hundred percent of the time you all are wrong every time. With that said, it's time for this weeks poll, vote accordingly.
