The Washington State Cougars find themselves down 32-0 at halftime on the road against Arizona State
The Washington State Cougars have been dominated through two quarters of play at Sun Devil Stadium against the Arizona State Sun Devils and enter halftime down 32-0 on the road in the Pac-12 clash.
The Sun Devils opened the game forcing the Cougars into a three-and-out on their very first drive of the game, setting the tone for the remainder of the half for both teams. Washington State has yet to score against Arizona State and have been unable to get anything going at all on the ground, rushing for -14 yards in the first half.
To make matters worse, the Cougars changed quarterbacks in the first half after senior Jeff Tuel completed 8 of 16 passes for 67 yards and one interception. His replacement in Connor Halliday, however, has struggled too, completing less than half of his passes and throwing for one interception.
Across from the Cougars, it's been a field day for the Sun Devils offense, specifically in the passing game. Arizona State threw four touchdowns in the first half, all of which were big plays in the passing game, including three from starting quarterback Taylor Kelly.
