Washington State won a football game! That means we can get back to actual football related trivia rather than curling up in a ball and pretending everything was just a bad dream.
The Cougars take on Wyoming this week. The two teams don't exactly have a long history against each other -- having only played five times -- but there is a little bit of history. Let's see how well you know it.
Q1: Who was WSU's starting quarterback the last time the Cougars played Wyoming? Who eventually replaced him as the starter later in the season?
Q2: Luke Falk is more than 25 percent of the way to setting the WSU sophomore record for passing yards in a single season. Who currently holds that record?
Q3: RB Keith Harrington already has two receiving touchdowns this season. Who was the last WSU RB to score at least three receiving touchdowns in a single season?

1: What went wrong Kick coverage problems didn’t end up costing WSU the game, but they easily could have. Of Rutgers’ 34 points, 14 came because of returns by Janario Grant, who returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and followed that with a 55-yard punt return for a score. Even when the Cougars tried to kick away from Grant, their coverage was worse than if they’d kicked out of bounds for a penalty.
