James Nitties leads Australian Open by 1 shot after 2nd ro

No. 7 Washington looks to snap 10-game skid vs. Arizona St

This was a game that tested the character of the Buffs, as they faced their toughest test of the season against the North-leading Cougars (8-3, 7-1) and played perhaps their finest half of football after intermission. Falk tossed the ball to Kyle Sweet on fourth and 4, who gained about 3 yards but was met swiftly by Fisher, who made the tackle, denying a WSU first down.
