Why Washington State Will Win

This isn’t the Washington defense of the past several seasons.

It’s terrific, and it’s certainly not bad, but this year’s version isn’t coming up with as many picks, and it’s allowing more downfield plays. The secondary has only picked off two passes in the last six games, gave up over 200 yards in those to everyone but Oregon State, and it’s not getting enough key stops late.

Meanwhile, Washington State’s Anthony Gordon is cranking up the production with two of his biggest performances yet. After hitting Stanford for 520 yards and five scores, and threw three picks against Oregon State … along with 606 yards and six touchdowns.

The Cougar offense has become more accurate, more explosive, and even more dominant. The No. 1 passing game in the nation is averaging 70 more yards per game than LSU’s No. 2 air show.

Why Washington Will Win

Washington State is a high-end bumslayer.

It’s going bowing with six wins already, but there’s a better-than-average chance that all six wins came against teams that won’t go bowling.

Oh sure, the happy terrific fun-time offense is a blast against the New Mexico States and Houstons of the world, but the Oregons, Utahs and Cals were able to find ways to survive and win.

But how?

Third down stops.

The yards and production will be there, but for this all to work, Wazzu has to keep the chains moving and its defense off the field.

In the six wins, the Cougars converted 40% or more of their third down chances five times. In the five losses, the offense only converted more than 40% in the insane classic against UCLA.

Going along with that is Washington’s running game.

The Huskies are 6-0 when running for 187 yards or more, and 0-5 when failing to hit that mark.

Washington State’s run defense has allowed 187 rushing yards six times so far.

What’s Going To Happen

The Huskies have won six straight in the series, nine of the last ten, and 2007 was the last time they lost to the Cougars at home.

They’ll keep it all going.

Gordon will come up with yet another big performance, but Washington will be balanced, and Jacob Eason will be just effective enough on third downs to keep control of the game.

It’s been a disappointing season for the Huskies, but at this point, closing out with another Apple Cup win would be terrific.
