Nov 15, 2018, 11:43 AM
Gardner Minshew has been one of the biggest stories in all of college football this year.
WSU’s graduate transfer quarterback has led the Cougars to a 9-1 record (6-1 conference) thus far, making them the No. 8 team in the country both in the Associated Press and College Football Playoff rankings as well as putting them alone in the Pac-12 North Division lead with just two games to go.
As the Cougars prepare to host Arizona on Saturday and with the Apple Cup against rival Washington following just six days later, former NFL and NCAA quarterback Jake Heaps breaks down a few plays that show why the mustachioed wonder not only is in the Heisman Trophy race but is shooting up NFL Draft boards.
