Cougar Chalk Talk: WSU building off win over Stanford

PULLMAN, Wash. — The big question is which Washington State team will show up on Saturday against Arizona State.

The Cougars are coming off a win over Stanford in which they recorded a season-high 52 points.

“I thought it was a pretty dominant performance,” head coach Jake Dickert said.

The victory also ended WSU’s three-game losing streak.

“Winning is hard,” defensive back Armani Marsh said. “It felt good to get a win like that.”

After the loss to Utah Dickert said no one magical is going through that door. Despite the inconsistent play the Cougars are just one win away from bowl eligibility.

“It’s not having mass shifts in change,” Dickert said. “It’s getting better at what you do and executing what you do and having confidence in what you do.”

The Cougars will take on Arizona on the road next week followed by the Apple Cup against Washington. The tough schedule makes this weekend’s matchup against Arizona State a crucial one.

“We want more,” Marsh said. “That means we got to practice harder and execute better so we can keep winning.”

Kickoff against the Sun Devils is set for 12:30 p.m. Saturday from Martin Stadium.
