"…in two weeks Washington State has scored 77 points and held its opponents to 27. The Cougars haven't put together two games like that since the storybook 1997 Rose Bowl season."
Derek Samson, Idaho Statesman:
"Washington State players thought Boise State entered Saturday's game with cockiness…That shouldn't be a problem anymore."
Dale Grummert, Lewiston Tribune:
"So much for the state of Idaho. The Washington State Cougars confidently and handily defeated a Gem State team for the second time in two weeks Saturday night, saying their sights are now set on the rest of the West."
Craig Hill, Tacoma News Tribune:
" Most likely, the Cougars will find a defense that will at least slow them down this season…But it's not in Idaho…For the second consecutive week, Washington State University buried an overmatched team from the potato state. Saturday night, the Cougars piled up 490 yards on Boise State's blue turf on their way to a 41-20 win, nine days after crushing Idaho."
Chadd Cripe, Idaho Statesman:
"The Boise State defense must have heard an air-raid siren…The Broncos ducked and covered while Washington State's quarterbacks -- and one receiver -- bombed their inexperienced secondary Saturday night at Bronco Stadium."
