Cougars spoil Bruins' perfect conference record with 27-7 win

Posted: Updated:
PULLMAN, Wash. - Dwight Tardy rushed for a career-best 214 yards and two touchdowns today as Washington State upset UCLA 27-7.

It was the first Pac-10 victory of the season for WSU, and spoiled the Bruins' bid to stay atop the conference standings.

Tardy broke free for a 51-yard scoring run to cap his first 100-yard game against a league opponent this season. His previous best was 145 yards against Oregon last year.

Washington State had 545 yards of total offense, and limited UCLA to 267 yards.

Cougars quarterback Alex Brink was 28-of-46 for 271 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

WSU's defense had two sacks against UCLA quarterback Patrick Cowan, who completed 17 of 36 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown.

It was the Cougars' first win against the Bruins in Pullman since a 31-13 victory in 2003.

The Cougars' next game is next Saturday at California.
