Wash. State, Colorado boast speedy sophomore WRs

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado's first foray into the Pac-12 could be a scoreboard scorcher as both the Buffaloes and Washington State Cougars boast an efficient senior quarterback and sensational sophomore wide receiver who can speed past D-backs.

Senior Marshall Lobbestael started the season as a backup quarterback but with Jeff Tuel fracturing his left clavicle in the opener, Lobbestael has thrown for 959 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Cougars (2-1).

His top target is Marquess Wilson, who caught a half dozen passes for a career-best 236 yards and two TDs in a loss at San Diego State last week.

Those are similar numbers to what Colorado's Paul Richardson put up against Cal three weeks ago, when he caught 11 of Tyler Hansen's passes for a school-record 284 yards and two TDs.
