A TIME LIKE this is when one's thoughts turn to ... Tana Pritchard.

TURNING POINT: Cougs' hopes punted away late

SEATTLE – On a night of ups and downs, at times it seemed that Washington State would have no problem blowing through Rutgers’ defense – and at others, that its own defense would be unable to make the necessary stops.
