SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) No. 2 Oregon is as high profile as a team gets but Washington State linebacker Cyrus Coen says he sees the high-flying Ducks as just another "faceless opponent."
"We're going to do the same thing we do every day," Coen said. "Work hard, that's it."
Hard work is what the Cougars can expect when they host Oregon and Heisman contender Marcus Mariota on Saturday night in Pullman. The Ducks (3-0) have beaten their first three opponents by a combined score of 156-54, including a Michigan State team that came into its game with Oregon boasting a fearsome defense. Washington State, meanwhile, staggers into its Pac-12 opener at 1-2.
