Pac-12 Week 8 Coach Rankings

Coach of the Week

Mike Leach, Washington State
There was a dip in the middle of the game, and Oregon got back in it. but Leach’s Washington State team had two weeks off to get ready, and it played like it right out of the gate in the 34-20 win. The run defense was all over CJ Verdell, and the secondary held its own against Justin Herbert. It wasn’t a perfect 60-minute game, but on the big stage, Leach had Wazzu rolling.
