Washington State Stuns Utah, 28-24; Extends Series Winning Streak


With just over four minutes to go in the game, Washington State wide receiver Easop Winston Jr. made a fantastic over-the-shoulder catch before shaking several defenders en route to scoring the game-winning touchdown.

The 89-yard touchdown pass helped the Cougars come-from-behind to beat Utah, 28-24, at home and extends its series winning streak to four games. The win also meant WSU won its 10th consecutive home game.

“I just had to get in the end zone,” Winston told reporters after the game. “Just get in the end zone.”
