Cougars set a new standard for scoring

NCAA Football: Arizona at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State scored 69 points in a game against Arizona and it wasn’t a basketball game. Yes, the Cougars really scored 69 points in a football game against a Pac-12 team. That is levels of scoring the Cougars have never hit in conference play. Not to mention WSU won by a whopping 62 points.

The 69 points WSU scored are the seventh most points the Cougars have scored in a football game. Ever. Against anyone.

With that in mind, let’s see how well you know the previous WSU offensive explosions.

Q1: Of the six opponents WSU has scored 70 or more points against, only three are still playing major college football. Name them using the name they went by when they played the Cougars (one has changed).

Q2: Since 2000, WSU had only dropped 50 or more points in a conference game while winning by at least 30 points two times. Name the opponents.

Q3: Luke Falk is now third all time on the NCAA career completion percentage ranking (min. 700 attempts). Who are the two players above him?

Breaking habits is always hard, and so winning in front of a crowd in Beasley Coliseum for the first time since Jan. 3 was likely to take a little extra exertion, even in an exhibition game.
