Bye week trivia? Bye week trivia!

Steve Dykes

WSU's loss on Saturday was of the record-setting variety, which opened countless possibilities for today's trivia questions. We'll dive into that a bit and some bye week facts. Remember, no looking the answers up, that would be low class BS.

Q1: Before Connor Halliday obliterated it, who held the WSU record for pass attempts in a game?

Q2: Halliday has now thrown 17 interceptions this season. The sheer number of pass attempts is going against him, but he could be on his way to setting a new WSU single-season record. Which two players are currently tied for that record?

Q3: When was the last season WSU entered it's first bye week with a .500 or better record?

Pac-12 bowl projections: Week 8 - ESPN
