As the fourth quarter begins, the Cougars are playing a closer game than they would probably like, especially since UCLA quarterback Richard Brehaut left the game midway through the second quarter with what was eventually revealed to be a broken left leg.
The good news for WSU is that they've finally been able to score a pair of touchdowns after three Andrew Furney field goals. Marshall Lobbestael was able to complete an eight-yard pass to Jared Karstetter midway through the third quarter. He later hurled a 21-yard pass to Rickey Galvin as the Cougars were finally able to take advantage of a winded Bruins defense early in the fourth quarter.
The Cougars have held the Bruins to a pair of rushing touchdowns by Derrick Coleman, but squandered several red zone opportunities in the first half.
The Bruins started creeping back in the second quarter, but the fourth-quarter Galvin touchdown may have put the Cougars in front for good.
