It was another very good weekend for the Washington State volleyball team which followed up a road series sweep of the Arizona schools last week with another of the Oregon schools this week.

The Cougars haven’t dropped a set in four straight matches. They got things rolling on Friday with a 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-18) victory against Oregon State. The test was much tougher on Sunday, facing No. 13 Oregon in Eugene. But yet again, the Cougs swept the match. WSU again won 3-0, this time 25-20, 25-23 and 25-15. At 6-2, the Cougars are now in a four-way tie for the best conference record in the Pac-12.

The Cougars entered this week ranked No. 25 and should see a bump in the rankings after another road sweep. The Cougars will finally return home this week, hosting Stanford on Friday and California on Sunday. The Cardinal, like the Cougars are 6-2 in conference play. The Bears enter the week 0-8 in the Pac-12.

The WSU soccer team played to a 2-2 tie against Arizona State on Friday. The Cougars went up 2-0 to start the game but conceded a pair of goal and were unable to score again the rest of the way. The tie was definitely not the result the Cougars were hoping for, as the Sun Devils are still searching for their first Pac-12 win of the season.

WSU definitely won’t get a break this week, either. No. 5 USC comes to town on Thursday with No. 7 UCLA on the schedule for Sunday. The Trojans and Bruins are the only teams ahead of the Cougs in the Pac-12 standings.

The Cougar swimming team split their Arizona series, pulling off a win against Arizona on Friday before losing to the Sun Devils on Saturday. The win against Arizona was the first time the Cougars have ever beaten the Wildcats.

The cross country team was in action on both Friday and Saturday with some mixed results. You can see the full Friday recap here and the Saturday action here.

The women’s golf team was back in action and finished 14th out of 18 teams at the Stanford Invitational.

Finally, the football team. The Cougars obviously had an eventful weekend, but considering this post publishes at 5 a.m. PT, anything I write here will soon be completely irrelevant by impending news. We don’t know what that news will be yet, but surely with it being October 18, there will be some news.
