Last season, Washington State handled UNLV 59-7. The Cougs face the Rebels Friday at 9 on ESPN.
Leach was asked yesterday if the win last year makes his job more difficult from a motivational standpoint because of the way that they dominanted the Rebels in 2011.
"Well it shouldn't. First of all, any team that doesn't give the other team credit is out of their mind." he explained.
"That's just wrong, and short sighted, and a sure sign of a bad football team."
