CFC TV: WSU's Mastro looks for the hot hand

PULLMAN-If you think Gerard Wicks' 123 ground yards on but 13 carries last week (9.5 avg.) automatically guarantees he's going to get the lion's share of the touches among WSU's three-man running back crew in the Apple Cup, think again, says Jim Mastro. And we asked outside WRs coach Graham Harrell, a former star quarterback, if he had any advice for a young Cougar QB headed into enemy territory.

After all, whether it's Luke Falk or Peyton Bender  in the Apple Cup, it's going to be a young Cougar QB. Falk is a third-year sophomore, Bender a second-year freshman.

Harrell also talked about wideout Gabe Marks being irked he was left off the Biletnikoff award's three-man finalist list.

Mastro, meanwhile, is looking for the hot hand Friday in Seattle, whether that's Wicks, Jamal Morrow or Keith Harrington.

Both Mastro and Harrell handed out praise for the Husky defense they'll face Friday, with Mastro saying it will be the best defense they Cougs have faced all year.
