It has been a while since we took a trip down memory lane on a Monday morning, but it is a light day for WSU news and we have some new content. Shout out to YouTube user SteelBuck 6 for recently uploading most of the 1988 Aloha Bowl.
Now, we aren’t working with great video quality, and it’s only 45 minutes of the game, not the full game. However, it is a Cougar victory and we do have Keith Jackson on the call, so it’s a net win.
If you only have limited time, I would suggest watching the second quarter where WSU scored all 24 of its points. The second quarter starts right around the 12:30 mark of the video. You can skip ahead another 30 seconds if you want to get right to WSU’s first touchdown. WSU scores on the old run into the pile and fumble, letting the ball shoot 10 yards into the backfield where a wide receiver picks it up and runs it in for the touchdown play.
The entire game is full of unexpected action, all the way to the final seconds which included a fight after multiple Houston cheap shots on the final kneel down.
What a way for the Dennis Erickson era at WSU to end.
