WSU opens Portland State week

New, 41 comments

The 2015 football season is nearly here, which means the return of trivia.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

WSU plays an actual football game that counts this weekend and that means it is time for the return of the CougCenter Monday Morning Trivia Contest. If you are unaware, every Monday we post a few trivia questions and dish out some extremely valuable trivia points. At the end of the year we add it all up and name a winner, who gets add to the illustrious CougCenter Champions Wall of Fame.

Now, P.J. Kendall is building a bit of a dynasty as the three-time defending champion. He's going four a four-peat this year unless someone can knock him off. We are going to mix things up a bit this season with the standard questions, a couple different formats and bonus questions throughout the day in the comments.

A friendly reminder that we don't take this very seriously, but cheating at trivia is dumb and please don't do it. The rest of us will post angry GIFs at you if you do it.

With that said, welcome to the 2015 CCMMTC.

Q1: Season openers haven't exactly been kind to WSU in recent years. Who led the Cougars in receiving the last time WSU beat a FBS opponent in the season opener?

Q2: Who handled the kicking duties for WSU in the game from question No. 1?

Q3: WSU has played Portland State once, who coached the Vikings in that matchup?

The ingredients for significant improvement are typically found in a football team’s own garden. Players get bigger and stronger, bonds between teammates become more cohesive and coaches become better able to translate their desires into execution during games. Significant changes to either players or coaches often do little
