Cougars get key defenders back for Apple Cup

November 26, 2016

PULLMAN – Washington State got three key defensive players back just in time for Saturday’s matchup with No. 5 Washington. Rush linebacker Dylan Hanser and starting weakside linebacker Isaac Dotson each returned after missing the previous week’s game at Colorado concussions.

Linebacker Logan Tago also suited up for the first time since the Nov. 8 game at Stanford. Tago had not been playing due to an athletic department policy that states players under felony investigation cannot participate in athletic competition. Tago recently pleaded not guilty to felony robbery charges, and has a trial date of Jan. 23, 2017.

But Tago, who was also suspended by WSU, recently had his suspension lifted while the school investigates possible procedural errors made by the student conduct board that issued the suspension.
