Tucson, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Connor Halliday threw a pair of touchdown passes to lead the Washington State Cougars to a 24-17 Pac-12 victory over the Arizona Wildcats at Arizona Stadium.

Halliday led the Cougars (5-5, 3-4 Pac-12) with 319 passing yards on 39-of-53 efficiency and was picked off once. Marcus Mason had 63 rushing yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Dom Williams led all receivers with 75 yards and seven catches.

Carey also tied Nate Phillips for the team-lead the team with 45 receiving yards and a touchdown on six receptions.

The Cougars struck first as Mason scored on a 15-yard touchdown rush put the visitors ahead, 7-0, with 7:10 left in the first quarter. They added to their lead as Andrew Furney made a 24-yard field goal with just over two minutes left in the opening stanza.

Arizona finally produced some points in the final minute of the first quarter and narrowed its deficit to 10-7 as Carey broke away for a 30-yard touchdown run.

The Wildcats went in front as Denker completed a seven-yard touchdown pass to Carey that gave the visitors a 14-10 advantage with 7:37 remaining in the first half. Neither defense allowed another score in the second quarter.

Jake Smith connected on a 25-yard field goal attempt with 6:36 left in the third quarter to tie the score at 17.
