Fast start propels Washington State past Colorado State

Washington State linebacker Francisco Mauigoa, right, sacks Colorado State quarterback Clay Millen during Saturday's nonconference game at Gesa Field.

Forget the years of Mike Leach and Washington State offenses leading the Pac-12 Conference in passing.

WSU is a defensive school now.

The “Coug Raid” is the term used to describe Washington State’s new Air Raid offense, but maybe “Coug Raiders” should instead be the nickname for the Cougars’ front six, who have ransacked opposing backfields to the tune of 31 tackles for loss and 14 sacks in just three games.
