Stanford Punishing Washington State QBs

Washington State QB Connor Halliday headed to the locker room with an apparent leg injury.

Halliday suffered the injury on a pick-six when LB Trent Murphy drilled him as he threw. Jordan Richards intercepted the pass and returned it 30 yards for the score.

Stanford didn’t stop its abuse of Cougars QBs once Halliday left. On the next possession, Ben Gardner drilled QB2 Austin Apodaca, forcing a fumble that Washington State recovered.

Murphy also just returned another interception for a touchdown to give the Cardinal a commanding 38-3 lead midway through the third quarter.

There is no word on Halliday’s status, though with the game well in hand, it seems unlikely he would return.
