Doba gets W in home opener

PULLMAN ---This wasn't the way it was supposed to go. Nearly 300 yards of offense in the first half alone. Holding the Lobos to 16 yards on 10 carries. Controlling the ball for more than 21 minutes. Somehow WSU found itself trailing at the break, 13-12. But for the second time in as many weeks, the third quarter belonged to the Cougs.

The Cougs defense played a solid game and the offense did just enough in the second half to put away a resilient New Mexico squad.

WSU found their stride midway thru the 3rd quarter, putting a 10 spot on the board and holding New Mexico to just 15 total yards in the period.  Matt Kegel snuck for 1 yard to give the Cougs some breathing room, and Drew Dunning hit the last of his school record 5 field goals to cap off the scoring.
