Gameday morning links

WSU will be back on the field in a few hours, here is some reading material to keep you busy until then.

The third Cougar Football Saturday of the year has arrived and this one has a bit of a different feel with it being the first home game of the year. Soon, there will be tailgating, keys jingling, chants of Go Cougs and Toto music playing wherever Kyle Sherwood is.

We won't have to wait quite as long for kickoff this week with a 3:30 p.m. PT kick. There aren't enough links to keep you busy until then, but grilling things, drinking things or other things will have to suffice.

Go Cougs.
