They did it. They finally did. On Saturday at Autzen Stadium, the Washington State Cougars finally broke through, snapping a nine-year losing streak and beating the Oregon Ducks in double overtime.
It was a sloppy, rainy day in Oregon, but you couldn't tell that just from looking at the stats. Luke Falk threw for 505 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. Gabe Marks caught eight passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns. Falk completed passes to 10 different receivers, and Dom Williams, Robert Lewis and Tavares Martin Jr. each had touchdowns.
How bout those running backs? Jamal Morrow finished with eight carries for 68 yards, an average of 8.5 yards per carry. Gerard Wicks added seven rushes for 64 yards, an average of 9.1 yards per carry. And Washington State finished with 136 yards on the ground if you include -49 yards from sacks.
We saw some great things from Washington State on Saturday. There was fight from a team that never gave up. The defense stood tall when it needed to, and Shalom Luani came up with a big play to seal the game, aided by a tenacious rush from the defensive line.
Let's relive one hell of a game with these highlights from the athletic department.
