Monday morning trivia

Another Monday, another set of Cougar trivia questions.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off the win against Arizona, WSU has a chance to add to its win total this week with Utah coming to Pullman. A win against the Utes would give WSU the six wins required to be bowl eligible. It would also give the Cougars back-to-back Pac-12 wins, something that hasn't happened recently.

Speaking of which ...

Q1: Which two teams did WSU beat the last time it won two straight conference games and when did the Cougs last accomplish the feat?

Q2: Marcus Mason caught seven passes on Saturday and now has 35 receptions on the season. Who was the last Cougar running back to catch at least 35 passes in a single season?
