#1 ot that spark from the defense. Then to come out in the s von dasg234 25.03.2019 05:49

Of all the things that have changed for Washington State in the past few weeks none can match the transformation of the Cougars offense.This is still home of the Air Raid offense with Luke Falk at the helm. But its the ground attack thats been the dominant component over the past two weeks.What in the name of Mike Leach is going on here?Im a big fan of balance, Washington State wide receiver Gabe Marks said. At this point in my career I realize what it can do for you. I like it.The Cougars look to continue that newfound balance on Saturday night hosting UCLA. Washington State (3-2, 2-0 Pac-12) is looking for a fourth straight winBehind the three-pronged attack of Jamal Morrow, Gerard Wicks and James Williams, the Cougars have rushed for more than 100 yards as a team in three straight games. And while the three games of ground success represent a small sample size, its the competition it came against that helps validate the evolving offense.Washington State rushed for 228 yards against Idaho, followed up with 280 yards rushing against Oregon and had 101 yards on the ground in last weeks 42-16 rout of Stanford.You have to be able to run the ball a little bit when you want to throw it. You have to be able to make people respect the run in order to open things up in the pass game, UCLA coach Jim Mora said. It doesnt surprise us. They count the box and if a run is there, Falk is a smart guy and he executes a run. But they do like to throw it. We do know they like to throw it.UCLAs biggest question mark is whether quarterback Josh Rosen will be able to play after getting beat up in last weeks loss to Arizona State. Mora was evasive about Rosens status, his most declarative statement being if Rosen is able to play, he will, and if he isnt, he wont.Despite suffering leg and shoulder injuries against the Sun Devils, Rosen threw for a career-high 400 yards in the loss. But his performance was offset by the Bruins (3-3, 1-2) rushing for minus-1 net yards and committing four turnovers.If Rosen cant go, the Bruins would likely turn to senior Mike Fafaul.Big fork in the road for us right now. It can go one of two ways, UCLA center Scott Quessenberry said. We can start turning on each other as a team or we can really come together and start rattling off wins.Other things to watch as the Bruins visit the Cougars for the first time since 2012:RUNNING BRUINS: Its hard to imagine Washington State having a better running attack than UCLA, but the Bruins run game has been non-existent the last four games. UCLA had 50 yards rushing against BYU; 77 vs. Stanford; 125 against Arizona but hit bottom last week against Arizona State with minus-1 net yards.The Bruins are averaging just 2.9 yards per rush.Anytime you cant run the ball you really make life hard for yourself offensively because you cant get yourself into situations where there are easy third-down completions or you get a team on their heels, Mora said.ON THE MARK(S): Marks is inching closer to the Pac-12 record for career receptions. Marks had five catches and his 30th career touchdown grab last week against Stanford. Marks now has 261 career receptions, 33 behind Nelson Spruce for the most in conference history.One of Marks most important catches came last year against UCLA on a 21-yard TD grab with 3 seconds left that gave the Cougars a 31-27 win.AIR DEFENSE: Falk is set to take on the best pass defense hes seen thus far this season.UCLAs pass defense is allowing just a 48.8 percent completion rate. Its the best mark in the Pac-12 and the Bruins rank seventh nationally in pass efficiency defense. But UCLA has yet to face a passing game anywhere close to the explosiveness of Washington States: the Cougars are averaging 381 yards per game.CRACKING 24: UCLA has yet to allow a team to score more than 24 points in regulation this season. Keeping that streak going means slowing down a Washington State offense that has topped 24 points in 16 of the past 18 games.Adidas Shoes Canada Sale .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. Wholesale Adidas Shoes . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. http://www.cheapadidasshoescanada.com/ . 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. Cheap Adidas Shoes Canada . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. Adidas Canada Sale . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human.SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- With Carson Palmer sidelined by a concussion, the one-win Arizona Cardinals turned to Larry Fitzgerald, David Johnson and an opportunistic defense for a much-needed victory.Drew Stanton threw two touchdown passes to Fitzgerald in the quarterbacks first start in two years, Johnson ran for two scores and the Cardinals capitalized on San Francisco mistakes to beat the 49ers 33-21 on Thursday night.We were a hungry team, a team that knows that we dug a hole for ourselves and we had to win this game, coach Bruce Arians said.The Cardinals (2-3) got 17 points off three turnovers by the 49ers (1-4) -- two interceptions by Blaine Gabbert and a fumbled kickoff return by Chris Davis -- and also had one drive extended by a running-into-the-kicker penalty.Those three scoring drives totaled just 41 yards, but proved to be enough to beat the sloppy 49ers as the Cardinals survived a week with without Palmer out with a concussion.I dont think anybody played well on offense. Nobody, Niners coach Chip Kelly said. I dont think we protected well enough, I dont think we threw it well enough and we had too many drops and two interceptions.Stanton didnt produce much, going 11 for 27 for 124 yards. But Arizona didnt turn the ball over and got 157 yards rushing from Johnson to get the win. Johnson added 28 yards receiving, and Fitzgerald caught six passes for 81 yards as that duo combined to gain 266 of the teams 288 yards from scrimmage.The defense did the rest with the two interceptions and seven sacks.Weve been saying all week it just starts with one. Just get one win and try to stack them, defensive lineman Calais Campbell said. Weve been a team in the past that can rip off a bunch of them. ... Now we have to figure out what we can do to keep that ball rolling.QUICK TURNAROUND: The game changed in a span of less than 4 minutes starting late in the second quarter. Campbells interception of a deflected pass set up Arizonas first score on a 21-yard pass from Stanton to Fitzgerald with 1:40 left in the half. Davis fumble of the second-halff kickoff then set up Johnsons 4-yard run that put Arizona up for good.dddddddddddd.We got the momentum going, Stanton said. Unfortunately, I think, its one of those things as an offense youre waiting to make a play, and got that spark from the defense. Then to come out in the second half and get the ball right there was huge.WE WANT KAP: There were several thousand empty seats at the game but the fans who did show up were frustrated by what they saw. At one point in the third quarter, a chant of We want Kap! We want Kap! started up as fans wanted to give former starter Colin Kaepernick a shot at quarterback. Gabbert responded by leading an 82-yard TD drive fueled in part by his 24-yard run .The chants started again after Gabbert threw his second interception .Gabbert finished 18 for 31 for 162 yards and Kelly would not address whether it was time to make a quarterback change.Were 1-4. Were going to look at everything, he said. We have to make sure were giving our team the best chance to go out and win.FAVORITE TARGET: Jeremy Kerley, acquired two weeks before the start of the season in a trade with Detroit, has quickly established himself as Gabberts most trusted receiver. After nine straight punts to open the game, Gabbert completed four passes for 63 yards on one drive in the second quarter, capped by a 9-yard TD pass to Kerley .PUNT PARTY: The first quarter featured six drives, six punts, zero points and only five completed passes as both offenses struggled mightily. Gabbert and Stanton missed open receivers, had other throws dropped and neither offense could generate much of anything.SACK PARTY: Markus Golden and Campbell each had two of Arizonas seven sacks as the Cardinals put constant pressure on Gabbert. Pass protection had been one of the few positives on offense for the 49ers, who had allowed just three sacks the first four games.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
