Instant Reaction: WSU cruises to win over Colorado State, moves to 3-0

A depleted offensive line for Colorado State and a fully healthy defensive front for the Cougars is the main story for how Washington State was able to apply pressure all game to the Rams on Saturday.

WSU (3-0) went on the win this game, 38-7, over Colorado State (0-3) in its most complete win of the season on all sides of the ball.

Colorado State was already missing some of its offensive linemen to injury before kickoff, but a late scratch for its starting running back, A’Jon Vivens, led to offensive struggles all game.

Throughout the first half, the WSU offense clicked, scoring in the end zone on four straight drives resulting in four passing touchdowns for quarterback Cam Ward.

Even with the offense slowing down in the third quarter, the defense for the Cougars still held the Colorado State offense to under 200 yards through three quarters and no points on the board.

It allowed WSU to pick up its most dominant win of the season and go into conference play with plenty of momentum.

Turning point of the game

Ever since the first offensive slap for the Cougars, it seemed as if WSU controlled this game on both sides of the field. Ward looked more and more comfortable in the pocket as the game went on. You really can’t point to a turning point in this contest after the defense brought pressure all the time and the offense finally clicked enough to be scary going into conference play.
