SEATTLE -- Something’s brewing at CenturyLink… again. And it ain’t Seattle’s Best coffee.
After falling behind 20-3, the Washington State Cougars have come roaring back in the second quarter and have narrowed the gap to 23-19 at halftime against the Oregon Ducks, the No. 2 team in the country.
Mariota is 11-of-17 for 107 yards with a touchdown and a pick. Halliday is 17-of-30 for 151 yards and a touchdown. Barner has 10 carries for 57 yards. De'Anthony Thomas has been a non-factor with four carries for 22 yards and two catches for 11 yards.
