Season Preview: Washington State

Week Nine:

Saturday November 8, 2008

The University of Arizona Wildcats versus the Washington State University Cougars
Martin Stadium: Pullman, Washington, Time TBA

Washington State Facts: The Cougs have been to two Rose bowls since 1997. Both in '97 and '02. They haven't really been the same since Mike Price left Pullman for very, very, brief stay at Alabama and now at UTEP. This will mark the major head coaching debue of Paul Wuliff at Washington State.

Good Cat News: If we are taking stock of teams that should be worse then Arizona, Washington State would be on it. Bad teams tend to struggle under knew head coaches and that's what the Cougs have. By November, with any luck, Arizona will have gelled and be ready to roll against anyone. Arizona, under Mike Stoops, has a record of winning games, lots of games, in November.

Bad Cat News: This is a road game in November. The Cougs might have over came the hurdle of another head coach by this time in the season. I can not predict the weather this far in advance (sorry), but in that part of Washington-that time of year-it's likely going to be cold. For sure it will be colder then Tucson. Possibly over coming the weather could be a factor.
