Another Monday, another trivia question.

If you've been following Cougar football recently you know there is a rule in the NCAA rulebook which says anytime Cal plays WSU a Bear running back must run for at least 100 yards. WSU has played call every year since 2005 and in those seven games, Cal has produced eight 100-yard rushers.

While it's essentially inevitable another Cal running back will top the century mark this weekend, today's two trivia questions go beyond Cal.

Q1: Which player holds the all-time record for rushing yards in a single game against WSU?

Q2: Which player rushed for the most yards in a single game against WSU since 2001?

The answer to the two questions could be the same, or it could be different. That's for you to figure out.

So, as night falls over the Willamette Valley after another golden Indian summer day, we'll say it for him: The Cougars are rebuilding.
