There is considerable uncertainty as to which WSU quarterback is best fit to run coach Mike Leach’s offense. Starter Connor Halliday still has a lot to prove.
Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday is a walking, breathing enigma. The redshirt junior can dazzle in the first half, then struggle in the second half, or vice versa. He can look poised and confident, as he did last week through three quarters in WSU’s 52-24 loss to Oregon State, or he can throw three interceptions in five passing attempts, as he did when the Beavers rallied.
Halliday is third in the country in passing yards with 2,241, but he leads the country in picks with 13.
The Cougars (4-3, 2-2 Pac-12) face No. 2 Oregon (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) Saturday in Eugene, their chances of pulling an upset slim. What chance does Halliday have of eventually grasping WSU coach Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense?
