Washington State is going to play with tempo.

Under first-year offensive coordinator Eric Morris, the Cougars are going to push it. During Saturday’s scrimmage, media in attendance noted that Washington State’s first-team offense went down the field 75 yards in just five plays at a break-neck pace. The Spokesman Review’s Colton Clark tallied a 14-for-15 start for quarterback Cameron Ward on his first two drives.

“We’re going to utilize tempo,” said head coach Jake Dickert afterward. “Cam navigates it so well, keeps defenses off-balance.”

Last season, Washington State was top-50 nationally in time of possession and bottom-50 in plays per game. With the Air Raid returning to The Palouse, Washington State is going all-in on its offense.

Ward, a transfer from FCS Incarnate Word, was one of the most sought-after quarterbacks on the market this offseason, and he lands in Pullman with a chance to elevate a team that went 7-6 last year.

The Cougars begin their season on Sept. 3 at home against Idaho.
