4. Washington State Cougars (9-4, 6-3)
Game #7, Saturday, October 15
The biggest surprise in the Pac-12 in 2015 came from the Pirate and his Cougars. Mike Leech‘s start to his tenure in the Palouse was met with some rough waters. Trying to survive in the North Division was killer and the Cougs just could not get things clicking.
But that changed dramatically as Wazzu exploded onto the scene in 2015. When the Cougars visited the Bruins in Pasadena, UCLA could not stop the air attack that eventually got Washington State a late-game win.
Expect Wazzu to be even more prepared this season and even more comfortable as this contest takes place in Pullman (and thankfully for UCLA in mid-October and not late November).
