The Washington State Cougars showed resilience after they lost their first game. Expect Jake Dickert’s team to regroup after falling short against USC.

It feels like Washington State is due for a points explosion. New starting running back Jaylen Jenkins could be the catalyst. His dynamic speed gives the Cougs another dimension for opposing defenses to worry about

Cougars’ quarterback Cameron Ward has been very effective in spreading the ball around. But it will be challenging for him to succeed without Renard Bell. The Cougars’ other receivers will have to step up in his place.

Once again, Oregon State may be without their number one quarterback, Chance Nolan, again on Saturday. Last week it took a half before the Beavers’ offense got going behind Ben Gulbranson, but they rallied to pull out a last-minute 28-27 victory at Stanford.

OSU has a good rushing attack. They’ll be ready to pound the ball with Deshaun Fenwick and Jam Griffin.

Look for Wazzu middle linebacker Daiyan Henley to have a big day.

These teams match up very well against each other; it should be a good game. Take Wazzu and the points.
