BELIEVE!

With some unlikely heroes and a ton of heart, the Washington State Cougars defeated the Stanford Cardinal today, 45-39.

The victory, played in front of 37,000 at Stanford Stadium, advanced Wazzu to 6-0 on the year and officially bowl eligible for the first time since 1997.

The Cougars are one of three remaining undefeated teams in the Pac-10 conference, as UCLA and Oregon remained perfect with wins today.
