WASHINGTON STATE ONLY had to defend 19 passes Saturday against erratic Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall.

BYU quarterback John Walsh was playing his first game since the third game of 1992 when...
PULLMAN – Daquawn Brown is a true freshman at Washington State, but he’s played with the swagger of a 10-year NFL veteran ever since he arrived in the Palouse. On Monday, coach Mike Leach said Brown might make his first start Saturday at USC. That means the yappy, cocksure Brown could be locked up with sensational Trojans receiver Marqise Lee.
