Washington State linebacker Deone Bucannon will miss the first half of the Cougars' Friday night game at UNLV after the Pac-12 deemed a hit to the head of a defenseless opponent on Saturday against Eastern Washington.

The conference reviews on a weekly basis all targeting and unnecessary roughness hits, Commissioner Larry Scott said in a release.

Through two games, Bucannon recorded 19 tackles and an interception for the Cougars, who are 1-1.
