Two touchdown passes from Marshall Lobbestael have Washington State up 17-14 at San Diego State.
In fact, in the matchup of quarterbacks, Lobbestael has the edge over the Aztecs touted starter, Ryan Lindley. Lobbestael has completed 12-of-22 for 201 yards. Lindley has completed 13-of-24 for 155 yards with an interception.
It's been a back-and-forth affair, but winning the turnover battle 2-1 in the half is probably the difference.
The Cougs outgained the Aztecs 260-221 at the break.
The screws are going to tighten in the second half -- this doesn't feel like a blowout game either way.
The question is who blinks? It's been a while since the Cougars were playing for big stakes in a tight game. How will they react?
