Rankings from AP Poll

The 1992 Washington State Cougars football team was an American football team that represented Washington State University in the Pacific-10 Conference (Pac-10) during the 1992 NCAA Division I-A football season. In their fourth season under head coach Mike Price, the Cougars were 8–3 in the regular season (5–3 in Pac-10, tied for third), and outscored their opponents 337 to 281.[1][2]

The team's statistical leaders included Drew Bledsoe with 3,246 passing yards, Shaumbe Wright-Fair with 1,331 rushing yards, and C. J. Davis with 1,024 receiving yards.[3]

Home games were played on campus at Martin Stadium in Pullman.

Washington State opened with six wins,[4] and were thirteenth in the AP poll, but then lost three of four prior to the Apple Cup.[5] A fourteen-point home underdog to fifth-ranked Washington,[6] the Cougars pulled off a classic blowout upset in the snow and won 42–23 in the 20-year-old Bledsoe's last game at Martin Stadium.[7] WSU won the Copper Bowl by three over Utah,[8] and climbed to fifteenth in the final rankings.

Bledsoe opted not to play his senior season (1993) and was the first overall selection of the 1993 NFL Draft.[9][10][11]
