First there were last-minute fireworks between Mike Leach and referee Michael Batlan, resulting in a well-earned 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty… Batlan's field microphone was still on after he announced the penalty and he could be heard saying to another official "you heard what he said, right?"

Idaho Vandals Coach Paul Petrino runs over to WSU Coach Mike Leach and shakes his hand and runs away. Moments later, words are shouted and Coach Leach appears to say "I don't have a problem..." before being drowned out.
