Monday morning trivia - post Apple Cup

Plenty of links on the firing of Mike Breske, but first the weekly trivia.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

With the Apple Cup and 2014 season now in the rear view mirror, we can look back some on the statistical records set this season. You likely know about the major records Connor Halliday and Vince Mayle set along the way, but they weren't the only notable marks either set or approached. We'll dig a little further into the record book to see how well you know your history.

Q1: Luke Falk threw for 355 yards against Washington, the third-highest total by a WSU quarterback in an Apple Cup. Which WSU quarterback threw for the most yards against the Huskies?

Q2: Connor Halliday completed 67.3 percent of his passes this season, a new single-season WSU record. Who are the other six WSU quarterbacks to complete at least 60 percent of their passes in a season with a minimum of 100 attempts?

Q3: Isiah Myers finished the season with 12 touchdown receptions, the second-most in a single-season by a WSU receiver. He's one of eight WSU players to top 10 receiving TDs in a season. Who were the other seven?
