Connor Halliday ignites comeback over Utah with 4th down plays
Two 4th-and-longs, two huge touchdown passes by Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday.
The nation's passing leader led Washington State to a 28-27 comeback win against Utah on Saturday thanks to converting two crucial plays. The Cougars turned two fouth downs into scores, both of which came by Halliday connecting with junior receiver Dom Williams. The first got WSU on the board after Utah scored the first 21 points. The second, with six minutes left in the game, narrowed the Utes' lead to 27-21. That set up Halliday's pass to Vince Mayle that went for an 81-yard touchdown to put the Cougars up for good.
It was a typical monster night for Halliday, who threw for 417 yards and four touchdowns. Williams and Mayle combined for 193 yards and four touchdowns in the comeback win.
