New, 9 comments

The Washington State right tackle earns the recognition after helping lead the Cougars to a 69-7 win over Arizona.

For the second time this season, Washington State right tackle Cole Madison has been given the Bone Award, an award handed out to the Cougars best offensive lineman of the week. The 6-foot-5, 318-pound junior helped lead an offensive line that allowed the team to tally 614 yards and 34 first downs in a stunning 69-7 victory over Arizona on Saturday.

Madison was a part of a group that allowed quarterbacks Luke Falk and Tyler Hilinksi to total 474 yards on 47 of 52 passing and 6 touchdowns. Neither quarterback was sacked or hurried once in their time under center.  They were solid all around as running backs James Williams, Gerard Wicks, and Jamal Morrow all posted more than 5 yards per carry and while scoring 3 touchdowns and running for 164 yards on just 29 carries.

Madison's first Bone Award came after a performance against UCLA that helped the Cougars earn their second consecutive win over the Bruins.
