At Tuesday’s press briefing, the primary topic of conversation for Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich was Washington State’s ‘up tempo – throw it till you drop’ air attack.
The Cougars, ( 4-3 / 2-2 ) visit Autzen Stadium Saturday ( 7:00 pm ) to take on the undefeated Oregon Ducks ( 6-0 / 3-0 ) in what’s expected to be an air show that can rival the Baylor Bears,….with and without RGIII.
Architect of the Cougars high wire act is Mike Leach who enters his second season as Washington State’s head coach.
Leach and his talented flame thrower, ( QB Connor Halliday ), has the Cougars 2nd in the Pac-12 in passing yards ( 2,241 ), 2nd in receptions ( WR Gabe Marks ) with 46 and 4th in passing touchdowns with 14.
“When you turn on the film it doesn’t take to long to realize these guys are very talented” said Helfrich Tuesday morning.
“Any team that goes into the coliseum and virtually shuts out a talented USC team,….they go on the road and beat Cal,… they’ve had a great amount of success on the road,…they’ll have confidence from that.”
