Washington State is on a short week this week as the Cougars will head down to Southern California to face the Trojans on Friday night. The Cougars don’t have great history playing at USC, but WSU is riding a 1-game winning streak at the Memorial Coliseum.

If you remember back to that game, you probably remember it as the Damante Horton game. And if you remember that, you might also remember WSU won the game despite not scoring an offensive touchdown. Which brings us to the first trivia question of the week.

Q1: Who is the last WSU player to score an offensive touchdown at USC?

Tay Martin tallied 149 yards against Eastern Washington and in the process became the 13th player to record a 100-yard receiving game in the Mike Leach era at WSU.

Q2: Name the other 12 players to record a 100-yard receiving game since 2012.

Washington State: 3-0. The Cougars have had a very solid start to the season. Knocking off USC in Los Angeles would be a big boost.

Too bad Mike Leach had already exited the interview room, because even Washington State’s coach – candid and blunt as he can be – may have cracked a smile hearing the exchange between Andre Dillard, Gardner Minshew and James Williams.
