Washington State looking ahead to Oregon

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Washington State players say they can’t dwell on an ugly home loss to Oregon State last weekend.

Not with No. 2 Oregon on the schedule Saturday.

Center Elliott Bosch said Monday that the Cougars have to put the 52-24 loss behind them.

The loss featured an epic collapse that began late in the third quarter, when Washington State was leading 24-17. They gave up five unanswered touchdowns in just over 10 minutes of game time, most enabled by WSU turnovers.

Oregon (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) has romped in all six of its games.

Washington State (4-3, 2-2) still has hopes of qualifying for its first bowl since the 2003 season.
