Connor Halliday finished Saturday's game with 521 passing yards. A ridiculous total, but just shy of the WSU single-game record. The current WSU record is 531 yards while the Pac-12 single-game record for passing yards is 536. With those in mind, here are this week's questions.
Q1: Who holds the WSU single-game passing record and who did he set it against?

Q3: Who was the leading receiver for WSU?
Q4: How many times has a WSU quarterback thrown for 500 or more yards in a game?
Q5: Who holds the Pac-12 single-game record for passing yards?
