GETTING MORE DUNN: Whittingham didn't think Washington State would kick the ball to Reggie Dunn after the senior returned two for 100 yards a week earlier against California. The Cougars did, though, and Dunn once again went the distance for a touchdown. Question is, what will Washington do this week?

"They've got to certainly think twice about it," Whittingham said. "It's something they've got to take into consideration."

Dunn's role on offense as a receiver is also expanding. Whittingham noted that Dunn was on the field more last week than in any other game this season.

"We've got to get the ball in his hands a little bit more on offense," Whittingham said. "... I think we're trying to do that and get that structured."

Dunn has 12 catches for 74 yards on the season. He also has 12 carries for 54 yards rushing.
