NFL Cougar Highlights: Week Four

ANOTHER STRONG PERFORMANCE by St. Louis receiver Brandon Gibson this weekend will again have Rams fans questioning just why the Washington State alum was not activated for the season's first two games.

Gibson started the scoring for St. Louis with a 15-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter of the Rams' 20-3 victory against Seattle.

Another legendary Cougar grabmaster, Devard Darling, had nearly identical results as Gibson in week three of the UFL season, catching three passes for 49 yards, including a touchdown. He also caught a two-point conversion in Omaha's 20-17 victory against Sacramento.

Elsewhere in the UFL, former Cougar defensive back Wale Dada posted five tackles in a 20-17 Lag Vegas defeat of Florida.
