Washington State has come back from a 0-2 start to sit behind UW in the Pac-12 North race
If the Game 6 version of the Washington State Cougars had a time machine that could take them back to Game 1 of the season, they’d want to go back in time and start over.
“I wish we could play those games again. They’d be different,” said senior receiver Gabe Marks, referring to the Cougars’ losses to Eastern Washington and Boise State that resulted in their 0-2 start this year.
But “that’s what happens. You gotta be ready when the season starts,” Marks said.
Almost a month after WSU dropped to 0-2, was dismissed from most postseason prognostications, and had head coach Mike Leach publicly question his team’s toughness, the Cougars are alive in the Pac-12 championship race again.
