Washington State vs. Oregon State: Mike Leach calls OSU 'More traditional' than Oregon

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

At Monday's weekly press conference, Washington State head coach Mike Leach spoke about the difference between Oregon State and Oregon.

Mike Leach spoke to the media during his weekly press conference on Monday and talked about the upcoming matchup vs. Oregon State as the Washington State Cougars prepare to travel to Corvallis, Ore. in a Pac-12 contest on Saturday.

Leach spoke about the difference between in-state rivals Oregon and Oregon State in the context of the Cougars schedule pitting them against the two opponents in back-to-back weeks. With respect to the difference, here's what he said:

"I think Oregon State's actually more traditional. That's the thing, especially in this conference and all conferences, there's a lot of variety to what people do and what they do offensively. Oregon's more the one that you don't see as much, as opposed to Oregon State and what they do. There's nothing easy about them. They're a good solid team, they're a team that took their lumps last year and feels like this is their year."

Oregon is known for its up-tempo style of play and putting up quick points on offense. Oregon State, who has won convincingly against two ranked opponents in Wisconsin (No. 13) and UCLA (No. 19), has shown the ability to keep defenses honest with a more balanced attack.

Either way, the Cougars will have their work cut out for them after giving up 51 points to the Ducks on Saturday. While Leach thinks the effort has been solid, they'll have to execute much better in order to compete and improve on their 0-2 record in the Pac-12 North.
