The regular season is over for Washington State and that means it’s now officially bowl season. Where the Cougars will head for the postseason remains to be seen until the conference championship games play out this week.

Until we know the bowl WSU’s future, let’s focus on the bowls of the Cougars’ past. This season, WSU will play in its 14th bowl game in school history. Of the previous 13, 11 occurred in the last 20 years. We won’t test your 1930 Rose Bowl knowledge this time, but let’s see how well you remember the last 11 bowl appearances.

Q1: Since 1988, which WSU player has the most cumulative touchdowns in bowl games?

Q2: Name the last WSU player to score a rushing touchdown in a bowl game.

Q3: Name the opponent the last time WSU did not score first in a bowl game.
