Monday morning trivia — Apple Cup Week

New, 10 comments
NCAA Football: Arizona at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Typically, I pull fresh questions for every Monday Morning Trivia post. But, this week isn’t a typical week. It’s Apple Cup week. Which means 1. There isn’t a lot that hasn’t already been said. 2. If there is anything that can bring positive karma for the Cougs, we’ll do it.

So with that in mind, I’m pulling the same questions I used in 2012, the last time the Cougars came away with a win in the Apple Cup.

Look up the answers, guess the answers. I don’t really care as long as the Cougs win on Friday.

Q1: Which WSU quarterback holds the single game Apple Cup record for passing yards?

Q2: Which WSU running back holds the single game Apple Cup record for rushing yards?

Q3: Which WSU wide receiver holds the single game Apple Cup record for receiving yards?
