BYU football: Cougars wary of Washington State's 'Air Raid' attack
New Washington St. coach Leach has pass-happy philosophy
Meanwhile, Washington State is also installing a new system on the other side of the ball — a 3-4 defense. The new defensive coordinator is Mike Breske, whom BYU faced when he held that position at Wyoming a few years ago.
"At least there's film and some history," Mendenhall said. "How much has changed based on the personnel they have, we won't know until we play. But at least there's some point of reference."
Although BYU offensive coordinator Brandon Doman is preparing to face WSU's defense, he knows all about Leach and his reputation.
"Anytime you play against Mike Leach's football team, wherever he's at, I think that's a nerve-wracking event," he said. "We've got to be ready to play well."
