Pelluer Out for The Season
PULLMAN, WA —
The Washington State Cougars might have won on Saturday, but they suffered a major loss.
WSU redshirt senior linebacker Peyton Pelluer is now out for the rest of the season, according to multiple reports.
Breaking his foot during Saturday's win over the Oregon State Beavers, after the game on Saturday, head coach Mike Leach didn't specify about the injury.
"[He’s] doing a fantastic job and thought he had a pretty good game this game," Leach said.
Even though WSU suffered a major loss on defense, the air-raid was in full effect.
Wide receivers Tavares Martin Jr. and Isaiah Johnson-Mack combined for five touchdowns.
Interesting side-note, they both went to the same high school in Belle Glade, Florida.
This wasn’t the first time the duo had a multi-touchdown game together.
"That was the fun part about it,” Martin said. “He get his, share of the wealth and I get my share of the wealth. And, at the end of the day, throughout the day, we spread the wealth to the young guys."
"I think when we played Olympic Heights. In high school we both had two touchdowns," Johnson-Mack said.
And a scary moment for former Idaho Vandal and current Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton.
Early in the fourth quarter, Luton received a very nasty hit and was down for quite a while.
Luton suffered a thoracic spine fracture.
Fortunately, he's with the team and he's listed as week-to-week.
The former vandal tweeted out his appreciation for the support tweeting, "Thank you to everyone for all the kind messages and support. I'll be back... #GoBeavs."
