In case you missed it over the weekend, Ernie Kent and Washington State knocked off rival Washington on Saturday. The victory gives WSU back-to-back Pac-12 wins and starts Kent's WSU career on the right foot against the Huskies. While the win was a nice surprise, Kent isn't the first WSU coach to begin his career with a win against Washington.

Q1: Kent became the fourth WSU coach since the 1971-72 season to win his first game against the Huskies. Name the other three. To add some difficulty, you must correctly guess all three at the same time.

Q2: Which of the other three coaches also recorded their 1-0 start against Washington on the road.
