Cougars quarterback Jeff Tuel was not cleared to play at game time, but his backup Marshall Lobbestael is performing admirably, passing for over 100 yards as WSU completely shut down UCLA in the first quarter.
Although the Cougars have only been able to score six points on a pair of short Andrew Furney field goals, UCLA's offense was completely anemic in the first quarter, when the Cougar's defense shut them down entirely.
The Cougars are looking to avenge their last loss at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and are looking to improve to 2-0 in Pac-12 play. They will need to capitalize more in the red zone for the rest of the game, as UCLA was able to take the lead on an 84-yard touchdown drive midway through the second quarter.
