Washington State backup quarterback Marshall Lobbestael threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns as Washington State defeated Idaho State 64–21 on September 3. Starting quarterback Jeff Tuel only played one series in the game due to a break in his clavicle that occurred at an unknown point in the game, and he missed the opening series of the game because of a stomach virus. Despite the injury, Washington State scored on its first four possessions against the Bengals, and they built a 23–0 lead in the first quarter and a 40–0 lead by halftime. After the Cougars took a 47–0 lead in the third quarter, Idaho State scored when running back Jahmel Rover ran in from 3 yards to cap a 73-yard drive. Rover ran in a second touchdown with 4:21 left in the third to bring Idaho State within 54–14. The game was the first time the Cougars scored 60 or more points in a game since a 63–37 win over Southwest Louisiana in 1997.[14]
