Washington State football gave up 50 second-half points to fall at home to UCLA. Take a look at how each unit stacked up against the Bruins.
Washington State football was part of one of the most #Pac12AfterDark games of all time in their first conference game at home. Leading 49-17 midway through the third quarter. Unfortunately, the Cougs had four turnovers in the second half after that and gave up 28 unanswered points to bring it within one score.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson accounted for seven touchdowns for the UCLA Bruins and was a thorn in the side of the Cougs from start to finish. Torching the secondary for over 500 passing yards and adding five touchdowns through the air. The Cougar defense looked like they had no answers for anything the Bruins were throwing out there, giving up chunk play after chunk play.
While falling to UCLA 67-63, there were some bright spots for the Washington State football team. Scoring 63 points in a record effort for Anthony Gordon who broke a single game passing touchdown record for WSU. Gordon had nine touchdowns through the air and threw for over 570 yards.
Normally, breaking a record like this, you would think that this game would be out of hand. For the Wazzu squad that was up 32 points in the second half, they would fall short after fumbling with a minute to go in the fourth quarter down by four.
