Leach not too disappointed in 4-4 record

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Washington State is only 4-4 heading into its first bye week of the season, but coach Mike Leach says he is not too disappointed in his team.

The Cougars’ losses are to No. 2 Oregon, No. 8 Stanford, No. 11 Auburn and Oregon State.

Leach said Tuesday the combined record of the teams WSU has lost to is 25-3.

The Cougars have also played eight games in the first eight weeks of the season, leaving players a bit banged up.

Washington State doesn’t even get the benefit of a full bye week. Their next game is Thursday, Oct. 31, against Arizona State. They resume practice this Thursday.
