WSU Vs. San Diego State Score: Lobbestael, Cougars Lead 17-14 At Halftime

The Washington State Cougars lead the San Diego State Aztecs 17-14 at the end of the first half. Both teams have been relatively equal on offense so far (260 total offensive yards for WSU and 221 total offensive yards for San Diego State).

The Cougars opened up the game with a bang, connecting on an 80-yard pass from Marshall Lobbestael to Marquees Wilson on Washington State's very first play from scrimmage. The Cougars also added on a 48-yard field goal by Andrew Furney later in the first quarter.

The Aztecs, meanwhile, got two touchdowns from running back Ronnie Hilliman (on rushes of 13 yards and 12 yards) in the first quarter to give them a 14-10 heading into the second quarter. Hillman has racked up 53 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries so far.

The second quarter didn't see much scoring but did see plenty of turnovers in the opening minutes. Washington State fumbled the ball away on the team's first drive of the quarter but was given the ball back just three plays later when Deone Bucannon intercepted Aztecs quarterback Ryan Lindley.

The Cougars proceeded to take the ball down the field and score on a 23-yard pass from Lobbestael to Isiah Barton, giving them their current halftime lead of 17-14.

Lobbestael has completed 12-of-22 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns. Carl Winston leads the Cougars rushing attack with 34 yards on five carries while Wilson leads the Cougars receivers with 109 yards and one touchdown on three receptions.

The Cougars will receive the second half kickoff after halftime.
