Why Washington State Will Win

Utah is having problems.

Washington State has to find something that consistently works offensively, but that’s not happening this week.

It’ll have a few good drives, and it’ll be in the game for a half, and then everything will kick in for the Utes as they go on a big run in the third quarter.
