Cougs lose Luapo for season

AS WAS EXPECTED, an MRI showed junior defensive tackle Josh Luapo suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee and will miss the remainder of the season, Paul Wulff said Tuesday morning.

DT Josh Luapo will miss the remainder of the season after being injured against USC.

Luapo signed with the Cougars in 2008 out of Los Angeles Harbor College and delayed enrollment until January. The 6-foot, 311-pound Luapo started the first two games this season, but did not record a tackle.

Anthony Laurenzi's role could increase with the injury to Luapo, as could Dan Spitz'. Spitz has started the last two games at defensive end with the injury to Kevin Kooyman. Laurenzi has played in all four games and posted a sack along with a quarterback hurry and pass break up.

At defensive tackle, Toby Turpin and Bernard Wolfgramm have started the last two games for Wazzu, with Wolfgramm starting all four this season for the Cougars.
