Washington State seeking some respect

Posted: Updated:

Washington State is 2-0 and has the nation's top offense. What the Cougars don't have is much respect, as they are listed as underdogs in Saturday's game at San Diego State.

That's what happens when you go 5-32 the previous three years. But this year's Cougars are more talented, and have far more swagger, than previous teams.

Skeptics point out that beating Idaho State and UNLV at home is not that impressive.

The competition level picks up Saturday at San Diego State (2-0). The Aztecs have beaten Cal Poly and Army this season, and went to a bowl game last season.

The Washington State offense ranks first in the nation in points scored at 61.5 per game, and fourth in yardage at 600 per game.
