Cougars lose in dispiriting fashion

THE MISSED TACKLES were numerous. The offensive breakdowns were plentiful. And that was just the first half. Washington State was dominated in just about every phase of the game against Oregon State in Seattle, and came out on the short end of 44-21 decision.

Jeff Tuel was injured at the end of the first half and did not return, but WSU had problems, and on both sides of the ball, from the opening whistle.

Oregon State snapped the ball 68 times on the night and racked up over 551 yards on the night. The Beavers were not forced to punt until only minutes remained in the game.

Paul Wulff after the game said he didn't think Tuel reinjured his clavicle seriously but he was very sore and they would need an MRI to be sure.

"We'll bounce back. Our kids know the drill, they'll keep fighting and we'll get better..we'll go down to Oregon and play a helluva game," said Wulff.

We'll have more later on...
