The Cougars beat the Ducks. In case you haven't heard, that is a thing that happened this weekend. The Cougars can now make it back-to-back wins against Oregon teams with Oregon State next on the schedule. WSU has not defeated both Oregon State and Oregon in the same season since 2006. That is a piece of trivia. Here is some more trivia, but this time you supply the answers.

Q1: Who was WSU's leading touchdown scorer the last time the Cougars had a positive point differential in a season?

Q2: Name WSU's two starting quarterbacks the last time the Cougars beat Oregon State in back-to-back seasons. Note: not just back-to-back games against OSU, but in consecutive seasons.

Q3: The Cougars rushed for 136 yards at a 4.5 YPC clip against Oregon. Name WSU's three leading rushers the last time WSU rushed for at least 125 yards, while averaging 4.5+ YPC on the road against a conference opponent.

7. Washington State Cougars: Last week we wrote that the Cougars could be one of the most dangerous teams in the conference. And Saturday they showed why in beating Oregon. If that is the team that shows up for the rest of the season, things are going to get very interesting down the stretch. A bowl game looks like a 50-50 shot at this point for Washington State.

It’s been a rough start to the Gary Andersen era in Corvallis. The Beavers’ only two wins have been pretty unimpressive — against Weber State and San Jose State — and they’ve been beaten by 18 points or more in each of their three losses, including a 44-7 pasting against Arizona over the weekend.

Cougars will never play a ‘complete’ game, but Saturday was darn good - Spokesman.com - Oct. 11, 2015
The truly “complete” game is an elusive, taunting leprechaun the Washington State Cougars will never catch and will never stop chasing. But though perfection is unattainable, Saturday’s 45-38 double-overtime win at Oregon on Saturday saw the Cougars (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12) play together in a way that shows them getting closer to their target.
