I know, we are only two games into this chaotic six-game Pac-12 football season. But with that being said, Washington State has seen their power duo of wide receivers explode through these first two games. That power duo includes the names Travell Harris and Renard Bell.
Let’s analyze deeper into these two’s play through the first two games. First, check out this tweet from CSN’s Carson Brown:
Travell Harris 2020 stats: 16 receptions, 201 receiving yards, 2 TDs, 54 rush yards, rush TD.
Harris ranks first in receptions and touchdowns in the Pac-12 and is 4th in receiving yards. His game against Oregon State propelled many career-best statistics for the speedster out of Tampa, Florida. In the game against OSU on 11/7, he had 7 receptions, 107 yards and 2 receiving TDs. He also added 49 rush yards and a rushing TD to seal the deal with 2:29 to go in the fourth. His play helped surge the Cougs to a 38-28 win.
Here was Travell’s rushing TD against the Beavs:
Throughout his career, Travell has put up some serious numbers for WSU. 90 receptions, 1,046 receiving yards, 8 TDs, 57 rush yards, rush TD, kick return TD.
Now onto the second part of the two-headed monster that WSU has at the wide receiver position, Renard Bell.
Renard Bell 2020 stats: 16 receptions, 218 receiving yards, TD. His 16 catches and 218 receiving yards both rank first in the Pac-12 through the first two games.
Bell’s best game so far came against the Ducks last Saturday. The slippery wideout from LA reeled in 10 catches, 158 receiving yards and a TD. His TD came in the first quarter to help the Cougs hold a 19-7 lead at half.
Bell’s 1st quarter TD against Oregon:
Much like Harris, Bell has had a phenomenal career in Pullman: 130 receptions, 1,537 receiving yards, 15 TDs.
Both Travell Harris and Renard Bell seem to be Freshman QB Jayden De Laura’s top-two targets. If these two studs keep on producing numbers like these, they could both find themselves on a serious number of postseason honor lists.
WSU faces Stanford on 11/21. They have given up 482 receiving yards, and 3 pass TDs through the first two games. We should be expecting the last name’s Bell and Harris in the endzone multiple times a few days from now.
