Monday morning trivia -- Connor Halliday edition

New, 14 comments

His WSU playing days may have ended too soon due to an injury, but not before he re-wrote the record books.

William Mancebo

Connor Halliday was well on his way to re-writing the Pac-12 and possibly NCAA record books this season before a leg injury against USC ended those pursuits. He still managed to make plenty of history during his career, including this season when he set the FBS record for passing yards in a game.

You likely know many of the records Halliday set during his career. WSU touchdown records, yardage records and more. What you may not remember quite as well is the players Halliday passed. So for trivia this week, all you have to do is name the player Halliday passed for the 10 records below.

Q1 - FBS single-game passing yards (new record 734 yards, old 716 yards)

Q2 - FBS single-game pass attempts (new record 89 attempts, old 83 attempts)

Q3 - WSU single-season passing yards (new record 4,597 yards, old 3,968 yards)

Q4 - WSU career touchdown passes (new record 90, old 76)
