Following a bye week, Washington State is back preparing for a game with Arizona next up on the schedule. The Cougars knocked off the Wildcats on the road last year, a pivotal game to reach bowl eligibility. WSU could use a similar result this week, but it will be a difficult task against the No. 15 Wildcats.
Before we get to that game, let's go back with some trivia on WSU vs. Arizona and a little Heisman Trophy action mixed in.
