WSU is playing the No. 5 team in the country on Saturday, but the volleyball team may have drawn more attention on Wednesday. The Cougars lost to No. 2 Washington, with more than 1,800 people in attendance.
Before the volleyball team took the court, the football team went through another practice. They'll have one more full practice on Thursday before travel and walkthroughs are the only thing left before Saturday's game. According to Christian, Justin Sagote, Peyton Pelluer and Brett Bartolone were limited in practice on Wednesday. Stanford week is not the time to be without one of your starting linebackers.
