Former WSU stars Marquess Wilson and Husain Abdullah go at it on Sunday, and one of them has a day to remember

TWO COUGAR GREATS faced off Sunday when Chicago wide receiver Marquess Wilson lined up against Kansas City safety Husain Abdullah. One of them had a day to remember, the other a day he’d like to forget.

Wilson lead all Bears receivers with six catches for 85 yards, including a 22-yard TD grab late in Chicago’s eventual 18-17 win against the Chiefs.

No happy memories for Abdullah, unfortunately. The free-safety let Bear running back Matt Forte get behind him in the endzone for the game-winning touchdown catch.

Wilson has caught six passes in two consecutive games, both Chicago victories. Abdullah finished the day with three tackles (2 solo).
