Monday morning trivia -- Oregon edition

The trivia contest rolls on and the focus this week is on the ground.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State ran the ball 22 times on Saturday, more than doubling its season total which was 21 attempts coming in. With the extra emphasis on running the ball and the fact WSU plays Oregon -- who runs the ball all over everyone -- it only seemed right that rushing attack was the focus of today's CCMMTQ.

Q1: It's no secret Reuben Mayes holds the WSU record for rushing yards against Oregon. Which WSU running back posted the second-highest rushing total against the Ducks?

Q2: Who was the last WSU running back to rush for at least 100 yards in a single game and who did he do it against?

Q3: How many wide receivers (players not total games) have recorded at least 100 yards receiving in a single game since a WSU running back last broke 100 yards on the ground?
