Cougars get quick start

MADISON, Wis. -- Some poor pass coverage by Wisconsin All-American candidate Jack Ikegwuonu and a fortuitous bounce have helped Washington State get out to a quick 7-0 lead on the Badgers.

After receiving the opening kick, the Cougars converted a first down on a Michael Bumpus reception in front of Ikegwuonu. Then, on fourth down, the Cougar punt attempt was blocked by Wisconsin's Kirk DeCremer, but the ball bounced back to the punter who raced 11 yards for the first down. A 38-yard reception by Brandon Gibson (again, poorly covered by Ikegwuonu) set up a nine-yard run by Washington State's Dwight Tardy. The 80-yard drive took just 2:26.
