 and Oregon State. Overall, inconsistent play at the one position that matters most, the Quarterback position, has
 been the Achilles heel of the dogs and as Cody Picket goes so goes the dogs. Here is a brief synopsis of the Hus-

 The Washington State University (9-2 overall, 6-1 PAC 10)
 Well, the Cougs weren’t picked by anyone to repeat as conference champions this year. In fact, the west coast me-
 dia picked them 7th out of 10 teams. (I personally picked them 3rd) How have they done to this point? Let’s see,
 they are one win from capturing their second PAC 10 title in as many years. That is correct, if they win out they

 been the defense, which leads the PAC 10 in nearly every statistical category. An offense that is efficient, but not
 spectacular has done just enough to not lose games for the Cougs this year. Not many people would have believed
 that the Cougs would be ranked in the top 8 in the country heading into this year’s Apple Cup.
