Washington State Cougars Game Notes
Washington State’s offense doesn’t feature tight ends or fullbacks. The Cougars prefer to attack with three, four and five wide receivers. They passed 41 times and ran 25 times in their Week 1 victory over Idaho. Quarterback Cameron Ward completed 26 of 41 attempts for 228 yards and three touchdowns in the 24-17 victory. He can take off and run but generally tries to stay in the pocket and give his receivers time to work free.
Wisconsin Badgers Game Notes
UW quarterback Graham Mertz completed 14 of 16 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown in the opener, in part because the pass protection was above average. He was sacked two times and scrambled out of the pocket on two other plays but usually had a clean pocket from which to survey the field. Washington State’s pass rush is more disruptive than Illinois State’s. Five players had at least one sack in the opener and the Cougars recorded seven overall in their victory over Idaho.
