Blue Cougar Football:
Exactly 20 years ago today, the Brigham Young Cougars registered a dramatic fourth quarter comeback win over the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. The week before, BYU survived a scare as New Mexico missed a field goal with one minute to play to preserve a three point win. In game two of the 1993 season, Hawaii missed a field goal with 39 seconds to play that would have given the islanders a three point lead. Notwithstanding the Hawaii miss, the game was still tied, and BYU needed points to pull off the win. Early in the game, it appeared that BYU would run away with this game. Running back Kalin Hall gave the Cougars an early 14-0 lead with two first quarter touchdown runs. Hawaii, however, came back by reeling off three touchdown runs of its own to take a 21-14 lead in the second quarter. The game would continue to swing from one side to the other with each team scoring in waves. BYU responded to Hawaii's run with 17 straight points to close out the half. John Walsh thr...

Washington State's rare victory at Southern California last weekend may be huge in the eyes of fans but coach Mike Leach says his focus has shifted to playing Southern Utah.
Leach was asked if last weekend's 10-7 win at USC was the high point of his coaching career at Washington State so far. He said the high point is always the next game on the schedule.
You know it is a big game when ESPN rolls their college football pregame in to town. ESPN’s signature show has set up shop in College Station, Texas for this weekend’s highly anticipated match-up with Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M hosting the two-time defending BCS champion and top-ranked Alabama in a huge SEC West battle. But where will they be next...
BILL MOOS, the former Washington State football star, was ecstatic about Saturday’s win over 25th-ranked USC. Bill Moos, the current Washington State athletic director, might be even more excited about the resulting rush at the Cougars’ ticket windows.
WHEN WASHINGTON STATE took down USC on the road Saturday, it was also a win on the recruiting trail. One SoCal lineman prospect, Chris Brown, who picked up an offer from WSU this week, tells CF.C he liked what he saw of WSU in action against the Trojans. And the Los Angeles product was particularly impressed with what he saw from the Wazzu hosses up front.
THE SPARKLE THAT Washington State’s win over USC in the L.A. Coliseum adds to Mike Leach’s recruiting efforts was evident before the Cougs even left the field on Saturday, says a WSU assistant coach. USC had more than two dozen prospects in the stands for the game -- and those kids were making sure the WSU coaching staff knew they were there at game's end.
LET’S PUT THIS into perspective. Washington State went down to southern California against one of the most storied programs in the country, at one of the most historic venues in college football, and won without scoring an offensive touchdown. Take just a moment to think about the absurdity of that statement.
PULLMAN – Washington State coach Mike Leach has stressed the importance of continuing to improve even after the Cougars’ upset win Saturday at No. 25 USC. And if Tuesday’s practice was any indication, the players seem to have received the message. Coaches are pushing players harder than last week as WSU prepares for Saturday’s home opener versus Southern Utah. Also, two players...
The Trojans returned to the practice field Tuesday, putting the 10-7 loss to Washington State behind them and now focusing on making the necessary improvements to get the offense rolling under Cody Kessler.
