WASH­ING­TON ST over Ore­gon St by 20

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Our best guess is that Madi­son, Wis­con­sin never looked so good to be­lea­guered Beaver boss Gary An­der­sen who is just 7-20 SU in his twoplus sea­sons in Cor­val­lis af­ter win­ning 19 of 26 with the Badgers. Heck, we wouldn’t be sur­prised if An­der­sen longed for his days in Lo­gan, Utah (26-24 with Utah State) where his Ag­gies fre­quented the Fa­mous Idaho Potato Bowl. Cer­tainly, we’re not about to back a team that is 0-2 SU, ATS and ‘ITS’ ver­sus fel­low FBS foes this sea­son, or whose only win was a 35-32 ver­dict over FCS Port­land State as a 26.5-point fa­vorite in which they lost the stats by 126 yards. How­ever, our hands our tied (and not in a good way) to­day in Pull­man as star QB Luke Falk left last week’s game in the 3rd quar­ter with a con­cus­sion and did not re­turn. Yes, the Cougs ral­lied from a 21-point sec­ond-half deficit to top the Bron­cos in triple over­time and HC Mike Leach says Falk is do­ing ‘re­ally well’ (but the last time we checked, Leach was a mad sci­en­tist and not a doc­tor). So un­til we learn of Falk’s sta­tus, we’re forced to sit this one out (though Leach would prob­a­bly start him if he had any­thing short of gan­grene). Your call, for now.
