There are still three regular season games remaining, but Washington State is already bowl eligible. While that is not a notable accomplishment for some schools, it is for Washington State. Assuming WSU actually goes on to play in a bowl, it will be just the Cougars' 12th bowl game appearance. For comparison when Alabama plays in a bowl this year it will be its 12th bowl game appearance ... in the last 12 years.

We're going to test your bowl game knowledge and look ahead a bit to UCLA with the weekly trivial questions.

Q1: Who was WSU's head coach the last time the Cougars beat Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Oregon State in the last season prior to this year?

Q2: Which WSU players hold the single-game records against UCLA for passing yards, receiving yards and rushing yards?

Q3: Name WSU's previous 11 bowl game opponents.
