Cougs crush Colorado

Nov. 18—PULLMAN — It was deja vu in the best way possible for the two Cougar seniors and best friends.

Washington State edge Ron Stone Jr. came all the way around from behind to strip sack Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders and teammate Brennan Jackson was there to scoop the loose ball and run 45 yards for a defensive touchdown.

For Colorado (4-7, 1-7) and Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders, it was their worst loss in a season that started with national hype galore after the former 1-11 team started out 3-0.

Big-play BJ

Jackson became the first Football Bowl Subdivision player in at least 20 years to score three touchdowns on fumble returns in a season when he grabbed his second loose ball of the game and rumbled 74 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. WSU led 56-7 after the extra point.

Sanders exits with injury

The most-sacked quarterback in the NCAA, Sanders took major pressure from the first drive of the game until he left with an injury.

Stone burst around the edge and crumpled Sanders to the turf on third down on the first drive, showing a sign of things to come for Colorado’s overmatched offensive line.
