Monday morning trivia -- bye week edition

New, 15 comments

The Cougars are on a bye, but trivia never takes a week off.

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

Washington State football will go undefeated this week. The Cougars will take a week off before hosting No. 16 Arizona in Pullman on Oct. 25. At 2-5, the Cougars need to win four of their final games to become bowl eligible. That could require beating at least two ranked teams as three of the five opponents left on the schedule are currently ranked.

Before we worry about that, however, we'll start the bye week with a little trivia.

Q1: Vince Mayle is on pace to top 1,300 receiving yards which would set a WSU senior record. Who currently holds that record?

Q2: There was a tie in the NFL on Sunday. When was the last time WSU played to a tie, who was the opponent and where was the game played?

Young, developing Cougars hit needed bye week - Spokesman.com - Oct. 12, 2014
After seven consecutive night games to open the season, Washington State finally has a bye week. It will be a good opportunity for the Cougars, who are starting to look a little beat up, to get off their feet for a few days and for the coaches to hit the road and do some recruiting.

What was learned in the Pac-12: Week 7 - ESPN
The Cougars probably aren't bowling: Washington State hasn't been officially eliminated, but at 2-5, it would have to win four of its final five games to reach bowl eligibility. Of the Cougars' remaining five opponents, four are either ranked or have been ranked, and Oregon State is 4-1. WSU has had plenty of bummer moments this year. But ask yourself this: Is the 2014 Washington State team better than the 2013 group? The Pac-12 blog thinks so. (At least this sliver of the blog does.) Of course, that brings up all sorts of metaphysical conundrums of Coug-on-Coug Couging. Still, this team is going to spoil someone's season.
