2014 Kicks off

It was good to be back on the field shooting as the 2014 season kicked off on Thursday. The Big Ten newbies Rutgers Scarlet Knights came into Seattle to face the Washington State Cougars playing in their annual “Seattle Game”. Connor Halliday picked right up where he ended last year with a huge game of 532 YDS, 5 TD, 1 INT. But defense and special teams lapses were too much to overcome as the Knights beat the Cougars 41-38.
