No time to waste, so let's get right into today's trivia question. The football team is 3-6 with three games to play. Win all three and they will be rewarded with a bowl game. This got me to thinking, which leads to today's two trivia questions.
Q: Since 1917 how many winning streaks of at least three games has WSU had?
Q: How many times has WSU won at least three consecutive conference games since joining the Pac-8/10/12?
Each question will be worth 10 points. If no one guesses correctly by 3 p.m. the closest guess wins.
You'll probably see the standings scrolling on the ESPN bottomline later, but if you don't here they are.

What we learned in the Pac-12: Week 10 - College Football Nation Blog - ESPN
Paul Wulff is in trouble: Washington State started 3-1, and there was reasonable hope that the Cougars had turned a corner. But after five consecutive losses, including a pounding at Cal on Saturday, most of the early-season optimism is gone. The schedule ahead -- Arizona State, Utah and Washington -- is rugged. The Cougs will be underdogs in each game. But if coach Paul Wulff doesn't produce an upset or two, it's hard to imagine him keeping his job.
CALGARY -- You go into battle with the army you have, not the one you'd like to have. The reality for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers right now is that they may very well have to be led into the playoff battle this month by backup quarterback Alex Brink rather than their banged-up starter of choice, Buck Pierce.
