Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday will miss the Apple Cup against rival Washington this weekend because of a lacerated liver suffered in an overtime loss to Utah.
Halliday remained in stable condition in the intensive care unit at Pullman Regional Hospital on Monday.
The redshirt freshman was admitted to the hospital shortly after Saturday's game, complaining of pain. He suffered numerous hard hits during Washington State's 30-27 loss to Utah.
''He had an unbelievably courageous outing,'' coach Paul Wulff said Sunday night. ''It looked like the initial injury probably happened early in the second quarter. He hung in there, took hits, and threw the ball under duress and pain.
''He brought us all the way back with a chance to win the game, so I'm very proud of his toughness and grit,'' Wulff said.
Specialists at the hospital determined he suffered a lacerated liver. He will remain in the intensive care unit for several days, WSU officials said.
