Tuel questionable for UCLA game

PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel’s status is still questionable for this Saturday’s home game against UCLA.

Tuel did not practice Tuesday after dislocating his knee in the Cougars’ loss at Arizona last Saturday.  Instead, he primarily stuck to the sidelines while wearing a knee brace and walking gingerly.  

“It’s kind of questionable right now, and it will probably be a gametime decision,” said head coach Paul Wulff.  “We’ll kind of gauge that throughout the week.”

In thinking ahead to Saturday, Wulff said UCLA is a veteran defense.  He noted their six seniors on the defensive side of the ball and said he’s particularly impressed with their defensive line.

“They’ve been in every game, they’re very competitive,” said Wulff of UCLA. “They should have beaten Oregon State at Oregon State two weeks ago.”  

The Cougars actually have decent record against the Bruins at Martin Stadium.  UCLA has just one win in the last six contests, having lost in 2007, 2003, 2001, 1997 and 1995.  Despite the impressive home record, UCLA has a 36-18-1 advantage over the long haul.  

Last year, the Bruins outscored the Cougars 28-3 in the Rose Bowl in game five of the 2008 season.   

Saturday’s game kicks off at 2 p.m. in Pullman.
