Monday morning trivia

William Mancebo

Time to dive deep into some basketball trivia.

It doesn't last long, or hasn't in recent history, but we are officially at the point in the year where basketball and football seasons temporarily overlap. That gives us plenty of games to watch, but also helps me out with the weekly trivia. With the football team on a bye, we're going to dive deep into the basketball history books.

Q1: With their win on Friday, the Cougars improved to 47-1 all time in games played in November in Pullman. Who handed WSU it's only Pullman Friel Court November loss?

Q2: Who was the coach of the Cougars the season the loss in question one occurred?

Q3: WSU hasn't had much success against Arizona recently, who started at quarterback for WSU the last time the Cougars beat the Wildcats in Arizona?

Football:

We've talked a lot about bowl eligibility this season and while we don't know if WSU will get the six wins needed, it may not matter if they do. In his weekly bowl projections, Ted Miller questioned whether there will be enough spots for all of the Pac-12 bowl teams. The Pac-12 has seven bowl slots and could have as many as 10 bowl eligible teams. There are 70 bowls and 57 teams are already bowl eligible, it's possible a few will get left out this season. WSU could win two of its final three games and still get 2006'd.

Pac-12 football bowl projections: Week 11 - ESPN
We're still projecting the Pac-12 to get two BCS bowl teams, despite Stanford knocking Oregon out of the national title game. We're also projecting nine conference teams to become bowl eligible, which means the conference will have a free agent. To be honest, we have no idea where that free agent -- we're projecting Utah -- might end up. There, in fact, might not be an available spot. There are 35 bowls with 70 spots to fill. At present, there are 57 bowl-eligible teams with 20 needing just one more win.

The Cougars spent the bulk of practice working on various individual drills, and we had a chance to speak with Breske after practice. Excerpts from that interview after the jump.
