Minshew Mania is alive and well in the NFL.

After a couple of lackluster performances, Minshew carved up the Jets on Sunday with some classic Gardner Minshew plays.

Like this:

And this:

Minshew completed 22-of-34 passes for 279 yards and three touchdowns. The Jaguars are now 4-4 and Minshew continues to make his case to retain the starting job even when Nick Foles returns from injury in a few weeks.

It was a relatively lackluster week for the rest of the Cougs in the NFL. Deone Bucannon recorded one tackle for the Giants. Joe Dahl started for the Lions.

Jalen Thompson started for Arizona and finished with six tackles.

Oregon-Washington, for all its action and momentum swings, didn’t involve a last-second score.

On Saturday night … late Saturday night … the Ducks and Cougars delivered a high-stakes thriller over nearly four hours (with much of that time spent waiting for replay reviews).

Soccer:

Late Strike Sinks WSU - Washington State University Athletics
Two second half goals halted No. 19 Washington State's (10-5-1, 3-4-1) winning streak against No. 18 UCLA (11-4-1, 5-2-0) as the Bruins took a 2-1 win over the Cougars Sunday afternoon in Westwood.

Volleyball:

That possibility crumbled later in the afternoon, partly because of the Utes' failure to finish their own match against No. 24 Washington State at the Huntsman Center. Utah missed a good close-out opportunity in the fourth set and absorbed a 3-2 defeat.
