A blowout on the Palouse

Sep. 17—PULLMAN — It doesn’t get much more dominant than it did for No. 23 Washington State in its football blowout of Northern Colorado on Saturday.

WSU quarterback Cam Ward had 327 passing yards and five total touchdowns all in the first half, the Cougars scored touchdowns on their first nine offensive drives, three players had their first-career TDs and WSU pummeled the Bears 64-21.

Ward was a perfect 12-of-12 for 169 yards with two passing TDs and one rushing TD on WSU’s first three drives. Just like that, the Cougars (3-0) suddenly led 22-0 in the first quarter.

Northern Colorado (0-3) didn’t score until getting a touchdown with 12 seconds to go before halftime, but at that point it had already been trailing 43-0.

Two of Ward’s touchdowns went to senior wide receiver Lincoln Victor, who had a team-high six catches for 119 yards and could’ve had another touchdown that was dropped in the end zone.

“I thought Cam was phenomenal,” Dickert said. “He was sharp.”

The backups’ time to shine

Many backup players only get a couple of opportunities to see the field in a season and WSU’s reserves took advantage of their playing time against the overmatched Bears in a big way.

Freshman quarterback John Mateer went 7-of-8 for 138 yards passing and had two touchdown passes to a pair of Cougs who found the end zone for the first time — sophomore wide receivers Josh Meredith and Tsion Nunnally.

Mateer’s deep ball to Nunnally down the left sideline for 62 yards was the longest play of the…
