Something to celebrate in the world of Cougar football. Safety Chima Nwachukwu is a finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy, a national award honoring a college football player who is dedicated to community service and achievement in sports and academics. Read the WSU news release here.

Meanwhile, Saturday's game in Corvallis — to be televised by FSN at 1 p.m. — will mark the end of the Cougs' 11-week stretch of games. WSU has two consecutive weeks off before the Dec. 4 Apple Cup in Pullman. The game against UW will be the first time all season we get to watch a rested WSU team.
If you can't make it to the Apple Cup, don't worry. Versus will televise the game this year. Kickoff is at 4 p.m.
