THERE IS A GOD!

AS IF CHANNELING Paul Wulff's words from throughout the practice week, Washington State's Cougars finished on Saturday at Colorado. And what a finish it was. The final score, 31-27, doesn't give justice to the furious final five minutes that propelled WSU to a dramatic, come-from-behind victory in Boulder.

The 500th victory in school history was one to remember. The Cougars scored twice in the final 2:35, as quarterback Marshall Lobbestael fired TD passes of 19 and 63 yards to Isiah Barton and Marquess Wilson.

Wilson's TD came with 1:10 left. He said of the play that Colorado's safety was being very aggressive -- "jumping down on crossing routes" -- so the Cougs decided to attack vertically.

Lobbestael sold a pump fake, while Wilson cut straight down the field and found himself wide open.

Wilson finished the day with six catches for 121 yards, while Jared Karstetter grabbed nine passes for 105 yards and Barton seven for 68.

Lobbestael concluded the day completing 32 of 49 passes for 376 yards and three TDs.

In the final minute, with Colorado back with the ball, Cougar corner Damante Horton stripped a Colorado receiver of the ball on Colorado's first play from scrimmage and C.J. Mizell recovered the fumble with 55 seconds left to seal the win.

WSU is now 3-1 on the season and 1-0 in Pac-12 play.
