HOT COUGAR ACTION: Scrimmage Recaps And A Baseball Win

WSU continued spring football practice, holding their first scrimmage of spring. Brian's notes from the scrimmage can be found here with Christian Caple's notes here. The Cougars are now one-third of the way through the 15 spring practices and 20 days away from the Crimson and Gray game in Spokane.

The WSU baseball team won the second game of their series against USC. It was a much needed bounceback win after they gave up eight runs in the ninth inning in a 15-10 loss Friday night.

Interviews from the baseball game and the football scrimmage can be found after the jump.
