Should we hit the panic button yet for Washington University? Last week Boise State exposed them on both sides of the ball. Until the third quarter, Boise State had the right ingredients to form an upset, but it did not happen. Boise State coughed up the ball a couple of times late in the fourth quarter and that was when WSU got their heads out of their butts and started making plays down the field to secure the victory. One concern was the running game, which was not there last weekend. The running attack was semi existent against Boise State. They had only 22 rushing yards against Boise State, which made it hard for the team to get into any type of productivity out of their key players.
If they had a running attack, maybe they wouldn’t have been down 21 points in the second half. If they played a bigger team in After coming back from a 21 deficit against Boise State last week and won the game in the third overtime 47-44, the Cougs have to understand that they need to read opponents’ defenses faster. WSU’s QB Luke Falk was out of sync in the first half. He was hit, hurried, and had some crucial mistakes down the line that could have been avoided. Falk seems to hold on to the ball too long or try to fit the ball in some tight spaces for his wide receivers.the Pac 12 it would be another story.

WSU was lucky to cap off drives by Boise States mistakes and make a game of it. WSU’s defense was great with doing what they needed to survive last’s weeks game, but this week they will face Oregon State and it will be a test to see how tired they are from playing last week. Oregon State is known to shock people with their defensive, so WSU has to keep their foot on the gas if they score first. Only time will tell if the Cougs can keep this hot streak going.
