The Cougars are now two days removed from the close loss to Stanford. While many Cougar fans are still getting over the loss, the college football world has moved on. That includes with the latest polls where WSU received votes again in both the Associated Press Top 25 and the Coaches' Poll.
Washington State didn't receive much consideration -- one vote in the AP and four in the Coaches' -- but it is still something. It also got me to thinking about WSU's history of playing while ranked which leads to this week's trivia questions.
Q1: Who were WSU's opponents the last time the Cougars played a game ranked in certain segments of the AP Top 25. Specifically, who did WSU play the last time the Cougars were ranked No. 21-25, No. 16-20, No. 11-15, No. 6-10 and No. 1-5?
Q2: WSU plays Arizona State. Many of you probably remember the last time WSU beat the Sun Devils. Connor Halliday threw for 494 yards. Marquess Wilson hauled in the majority of those yards, but who was WSU's second-leading receiver that day?
