PULLMAN, Wash. -- You ever heard of a team losing after forcing 6 turnovers? The Cougars did it on Saturday.
WSU Quarterback Jeff Tuel threw two interceptions and the injury-depleted offensive line allowed 12 sacks in the Cougs 27-14 loss to the Sun Devils.
The Cougars are hoping the bye week allows them to get ready for a team that was once ranked in the top 10 in the country: the Cal Bears.
The Cougs also hope to get some of their injured back after the break.
"The silver lining is that young guys are getting reps," said Cougar Head Coach Paul Wulff. "It makes them better moving forward, it really does, and we'll get some veteran players back, particularly on the o-line. We'd like to get 3 or 4 of those guys back obviously in the next week or two and I think that'll make a big difference in our production on offense."
