It's been a perfect start for the Washington State Cougars again as they've jumped out to a 14-0 lead over the UNLV Runnin' Rebels in Pullman. The Washington State offense has had the ball twice, scoring touchdowns on each drive while looking downright dominant in the first quarter. Without Jeff Tuel, the Cougar offense has yet to miss a beat, methodically moving down the field and carving up the Rebels' defense.
Rickey Galvin picked up right where he left off, breaking a scoreless tie with a 47-yard touchdown run on the Cougars' first possession. Galvin burst through a hole and found nothing but daylight, outracing the UNLV defense to the end zone to put the Cougars on top, 7-0.
WSU took a bit more time on its next possession after forcing UNLV into a three-and-out. Marshall Lobbestael, starting in place of Jeff Tuel, engineered the drive, then capped it with a short strike to Jared Karstetter for the touchdown.
In the first quarter, WSU is on top of UNLV, 14-0.
