PULLMAN, Washington (Ticker) -- Alex Brink threw for 231 yards and three touchdowns to lead Washington State to an easy 56-10 triumph over Idaho.
Bouncing back from last Saturday's 40-14 loss to Auburn, the Cougars (1-1) posted their sixth consecutive victory over the Vandals and 20th in their last 22 encounters.

After Tino Amancio booted a 21-yard field goal early in the second period to bring Idaho within 14-3, Brink struck again.
The junior hit Jordan for a 21-yard TD and capped a 96-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run for a 28-3 bulge.
Jordan caught his third TD pass from Gary Rogers with 17 seconds left before the half. He finished with four receptions for 57 yards.
Christopher Ivory widened the margin to 49-3 with an 80-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. Kevin McCall added a 53-yard TD run with 5:29 left for the Cougars, who gained 637 yards on offense.
Steve Wichman completed just 11-of-31 passes for 130 yards and one interception for Idaho (0-2), which has been outscored, 83-27, this year.
