SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Washington State rode the arm of quarterback Connor Halliday to its first bowl game in a decade last year, and Cougar fans can expect more of the same this season.

Halliday, a senior, led the nation’s fourth-best pass attack last season. He set school single-season records with 714 pass attempts, 449 completions, and 4,597 passing yards. He tied the school record with 34 touchdown passes.

The Cougars went 6-6 in the regular season and earned a trip to the New Mexico Bowl. They gave up a late lead to Colorado State in the bowl game to finish 6-7 in coach Mike Leach’s second season at the helm.
