RUNNING BACK CHRIS HOWARD Q: How did you feel about the attention given to Washington State's high-powered offense? A: "We knew it was our responsibility to come out and put points on the board because we knew Ryan Leaf was going to come out and make a lot of plays." QUARTERBACK BRIAN GRIESE Q: What did you say to your father, Bob, when you embraced after the game? A: "It wasn't much of a conversation. I was kind of choked up. I told him I love him and he told me he loves me."
