HOT COUGAR ACTION: Monday Morning Trivia

It's Apple Cup week which means we of course have Apple Cup themed trivia questions today. I was hoping to post a few questions covering all-time leaders in Apple Cup history but finding the data proved to be impossible. Instead the following five questions cover the Apple Cup's played since 2000. Each correct answer will be worth five MMTQ points. 

Q: In his career, how many yards did Alex Brink throw for against Washington?

Q: Since 2000, which WSU player has the highest yards per carry average (min one carry)?

Q: Since 2000, which WSU player has the most total tackles?

Q: Since 2000, which WSU player has the most interceptions?

Q: Since 2000, which WSU player scored the most touchdowns?

Remember, we are only talking Apple Cup stats.
