WSU soccer wins; Gardner Minshew shines again

The Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t win on Sunday, but it wasn’t because of a lack of effort from Gardner Minshew II. Minshew set a new career high with 374 passing yards.

The former Washington State Cougars QB nearly led the Jaguars on a game-tying 95-yard drive in the final minutes, but his final attempt at the end zone was batted down. Minshew now owns the Jaguars record for the most passing yards through five career games.

Minshew didn’t get the win on Sunday, but the WSU soccer team did. And in dramatic fashion.

They may have lost to No. 2 Stanford, but pulling out a win on the road against a ranked California team is a nice way to salvage the weekend.
