Washington State Vs. Utah Score Update: Connor Halliday Throws Two Picks In First Quarter, Teams Tied 0-0

The Washington St. Cougars look to build on last week's impressive 37-27 win over the Arizona St. Sun Devils with a victory over the Utah Utes at home. Through one quarter, the Cougars are on the right rack and lead 7-0.

The Cougars received the game's opening kickoff but both teams struggled to piece together long offensive drives. Neither team marched further than 31 yards down the field on their opening possession, and the two sides followed up back-to-back punts with back-to-back three-and-outs.

Washington State created an opportunity when the Cougars received the ball back with 7:53 left in the period. The Cougars reached Utah's 35-yard line, but an interception of Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday by Eric Rowe gave the ball back to Utah and kept the game scoreless.

On Washington State's final possession of the quarter, Halliday threw another interception- this time to Brian Blechen- to give Utah favorable field position at the Utah 39-yard line with 2:06 left. The Cougars defense has stepped up, however, and the second quarter will open up with Utah pinned back near its own 20-yard line.
