Hot Cougar Action: Monday morning trivia

What started out promising turned into a rough weekend for the baseball team. That and more in the links of the day.

"Whoa, that is a hard trivia question." - This guy, probably.

I realize this may shock many of you, but WSU hasn't beaten UCLA many times in history. While 15 wins in 117 tries would constitute as rare, a WSU sweep of the L.A. schools is an even rarer feat.

Asking you to name the last time WSU swept the L.A. schools could work, but let's take it a step further.

Q: Name WSU's leading scorer the last season the Cougars pulled off the L.A. sweep.


It was a rough weekend on the diamond for the Cougars and a 4-3 extra inning loss to UTSA capped it all off. The Cougars led 3-2 going into the ninth inning but a blown save eventually led to the loss in the 10th inning. The Cougars were one out away from salvaging the series, but instead are off to a 1-3 start of the roadtrip.

While WSU played well at home, the Cougars are 2-5 on the road and it will only get tougher when Pac-12 play begins.
