WSU to face off against de Laura, Wildcats this Saturday

Saturday will be a matchup with a known opponent. The Cougs out and about in Arizona, led by former WSU quarterback Jaden de Laura.

PULLMAN, Wash. — Washington State hit the magic number of six wins on Saturday, beating Arizona State 28-18 for its second straight win and earning bowl eligibility.

The offense has come back to life after scoring 80 points in the last two games. This is thanks in large part to the return of a healthy Nakia Watson. Watson has rushed for 282 yards and four touchdowns in his last two games against Stanford and ASU.

“The confidence when he has the ball and how he changed the look of what we wanted was really impressive,” said Washington State head coach Jake Dickert.

“This is the 18th bowl game in US football history. We’ve been playing for over 100 years,” Dickert said. “Any time our people don’t see that as a great achievement, we’re doing something wrong.”

Next, a matchup with a known opponent. The Cougs will visit Arizona, which is led by former WSU quarterback Jaden de Laura.

en Laura didn’t mince words when asked if he should play against his former team.

“This game is personal. It’s personal,” de Laura said after Arizona’s disgruntled 34-28 win over No. 12 UCLA.

“I don’t believe in external motivators very much. There’s going to be great storylines for everyone in the next two weeks, okay, but Washington State Football as a program, we’re focused on what we have to do,” Dickert said. “You know, did you circle that game coach? No, I circle every game. Our team circles every game. We don’t play against an individual. We’re playing against a team from Arizona who have improved a lot.”

If this game wasn’t already making headlines, former WSU head coach Nick Rolovich, who recently filed a lawsuit against Washington State University over his cancellation of the COVID-19 vaccination, tweeted the Arizona football account, asking if it tickets are still available.

Maybe Rolovich will be spotted in Tucson.

Washington State in Arizona will kick off at 11 a.m. Saturday. This game can be viewed on the Pac-12 network.
