Sep 13, 2014

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Connor Halliday, the nation's leading passer, threw for 544 yards and six touchdowns on Saturday as Washington State beat Portland State 59-21.

Isiah Myers caught 11 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns for Washington State (1-2), which had opened the season with losses to Rutgers and Nevada but proved too much for FCS Portland State.

Kieran McDonagh led Portland State (1-2) with 269 passing yards and a touchdown. Alex Toureen caught seven passes for 100 yards.

Halliday, a senior, completed 41 of 62 passes and was intercepted twice. Washington State piled up 706 yards of offense while holding Portland State to 362 yards.

Dom Williams caught four passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns for the Cougars.

Halliday came into the game leading the nation with 921 passing yards.
