If it's Monday Morning Trivia but it doesn't publish until 1 p.m. does it still count? We're going to go ahead and assume yes because we are bad at calendars and forgot what day of the week it is. So now that the anticipation has built to proper levels, let's dive into some trivia.

The Cougars are officially headed for the Sun Bowl, a place they have been once before. That was all the way back in 2001, so let's see how well your memories have held up through 14 years of Fireball.

Q1: Who scored WSU's first Sun Bowl touchdown?

Q2: Who was the first WSU player to log an official touch in the Sun Bowl. (KR attempt, rush, pass attempt, INT, etc. Not the center snapping the ball).

Q3: Name WSU's 11 defensive starters from the 2001 game.
