The Washington State Cougars knew coming into tonight that they were going to be facing their toughest test of the season as they take on second-ranked Oregon. But, so far, they’ve been able to hang with the powerful Ducks. As the game nears halftime, they’re only down 34-21, which is about as good as they can ask for at this point, given the way Oregon has pounded teams throughout the season.
But, to be in the game like that with a team that’s a lot better than you, you need some help, and Oregon has certainly provided their fair share of that so far for the Cougars.
Usually, that help comes in the form of turnovers, and that’s exactly what happened on this play where the Ducks fumbled the ball, and Washington State defensive lineman Xavier Cooper was right there for the scoop and score, cutting the lead at the time to 27-14:
Everyone loves the Fat Guy Touchdown, and this was one of the best of the day.
