Welcome to Cougar football Week 1

NCAA Football: Washington State at Stanford Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since December 28, 2018, the Washington State Cougars will play a football game that actually counts this week.

You reminisced about 11 wins through January. Got a taste of football with signing day in February. Suffered through March. Lived on spring football in April. And somehow made it four more months to get here.

It’s been 125 days since the Cougars were on the field. But, only five more days until Cougar Football Saturday is back.

It’s officially football season.

Mike Leach keeps finding ways to win. Last year, he brought in Gardner Minshew from ECU and he lit up Pac-12 defenses, leading the Cougars to a surprising 11-win season. In 2019, it will be fifh-year senior Anthony Gordon, Minshew’s backup last year, as the starter.
