The Cougars will travel to Tempe to take on the Sun Devils this week, a place that hasn't always been kind to WSU.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State and Arizona State have a bit of a strange history. The Sun Devils have dominated the head-to-head and have ripped off lengthy winning streaks on multiple occasions. The Cougars, however, have had some huge individual statistical games against the Sun Devils leading to a few streak snapping wins. There are really only two possible outcomes, the Sun Devils win or WSU breaks records.

Let's see how well you can remember some of the breakout performances.

Q1: Which WSU wide receiver holds the single-game high for receiving yards against the Sun Devils?

Q2: WSU had two different players toss touchdowns the last time the Cougars won in Tempe, who were they?

Q3: Who started at quarterback in WSU's last victory against the Sun Devils?
