Previewing WSU’s Defense

This week I didn’t have time to do one of my usual video breakdowns, but I did get a chance to look at some film of WSU’s defense. WSU’s offense is a known commodity under Mike Leach, and the Bears’ chance to win will depend at least partially on their own ability to move the ball and score points of their own. Because of this, in this post I’m going to put together a viewing guide that identifies some key things to watch for when Cal has the ball this Saturday.
