Ted Miller Washington State had the lead over Rutgers and a key fourth-quarter defensive stop. All it needed to do was close the deal with poise. It didn't. With an ending that surely had more than a few Cougars fans recalling the fourth-quarter collapse in the New Mexico Bowl against Colorado State, Washington State dropped a 41-38 decision to Rutgers, an 8-point underdog, because it couldn't hold a fourth-quarter lead. Again. And it couldn't hold that lead because of a critical turnover -- again -- this time a fumbled punt return from typically sure-handed receiver River Cracraft.
