Washington State QB jaws with Colorado State coaches in New Mexico Bowl

Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday threw five first-half touchdown passes against Colorado State in the New Mexico Bowl on Saturday.

But he also took some time to trash talk.

After his first TD pass — a 25-yarder for the first score of the game — Halliday ran toward the CSU sideline and started yelling at a few Rams coaches. They answered back with some choice words.

At halftime, the Cougars (6-6) led CSU (7-6), 35-23. Colorado State drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on a 4th-and-22 in the first quarter, and one play later, Halliday threw his third TD pass.
