Monday Morning Trivia -- bye week No. 2 edition

New, 12 comments

The Cougars are on a bye again, but trivia continues.

Steve Dykes

The one certainty of the Mike Leach era is WSU quarterbacks and receivers are going to obliterate the school record books. Connor Halliday made a mockery of a few marks and would have more. Just how much of a certainty is it? Luke Falk just made his first start of the season in the 10th game of the year and he has a chance to break some single-season marks.

With that in mind, let's get to the weekly trivia.

Q1: Falk tossed five touchdowns against OSU, becoming the fifth WSU quarterback since 2000 to do that. Name all five quarterbacks to accomplish the feat since then -- and to get the answer correct you must have five correct answers.

Q2: Falk has thrown for 903 yards this season, putting him 689 yards shy of breaking the WSU freshman single-season record which is held by who?

Q3: WSU will go on the road in two weeks to face Arizona State. The Sun Devils are currently No. 9 in the country and are likely to be in the top 10 for the matchup. When was the last time the Cougars beat a top 10 team on the road?
