PHOTO ESSAY: Cougs 56, Idaho 10

PULLMAN -- Washington State came out of the locker room primed and never let up, the Cougars methodically dismantling Idaho 56-10 Saturday out on the Palouse. From offense and defense to special teams and beyond, presented in living Technicolor, this exclusive crimson and gray 26-shot pictorial, as seen through the CF.C photo lens.

Michael Bumpus started the scoring for the Cougs with this 12-yard scamper as Washington State rolled to a 56-10 win over Idaho Saturday in Martin Stadium

Aaron Johnson 's day included quarterback hits and hurries, a forced fumble and caving in the offensive line

The one position where Washington State did not liberally substitute Saturday was on the offensive line. Here, Sean O'Connor, Bobby Byrd, Josh Duin, Kenny Alfred (not pictured), Charles Harris and tight end Cody Boyd (not pictured) plow the road on a successful quarterback sneak for a touchdown by Alex Brink

Defensive end Lance Broadus looks to alter the quarterback's flight path. Broadus' day included one very athletic interception plus a quarterback hit

Dwight Tardy skated for a game high 92 yards on 15 carries against Idaho

Johnson and Ropati Pitoitua each had a strong performance against Idaho, contributing to a stronger inside presence for the Cougs up front this year

Jason Hill tiptoes along the sideline on this 21-yard reception

Hill's 71-yard catch and run put him in the top ten all-time at Washington State for receptions, moving him past Deron Pointer (112 from 1991-93), and also placed him No. 4 in career receiving yards at WSU, passing Phillip Bobo (1990-92) and C.J. Davis (1988-92). Hill's 2,214 receiving yards are now but 238 behind the great Hugh Campbell's career tally from 1960-62
