Seattle has had little road success dating back to last season and has been blown out in a lot of those games as well. The Washington State Cougars had a scare in their opener, but managed to win despite shooting poorly from the field and struggling defensively. The Cougars should learn from that performance and put together a more comfortable victory against a lesser team. Give me Washington State by double digits.
