Monday morning trivia -- bye week edition

New, 48 comments
James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The non-conference season is in the books and Washington State is on a bye this week before taking on California next week. With no upcoming opponent to gear the weekly trivia questions around, we are instead going to dig into the recent and distant history to see how well you remember the "Touchdown, Washington State" calls over the last couple decades.

The question today is a simple one and is all about the alphabet and scoring touchdowns. If you remember the last names of Cougar football offensive players, today is your lucky day.

Q: Name the last player to score an offensive touchdown for each letter of the alphabet.

For example, the answer to W is Dom Williams who scored on Saturday. The list of answers dates back to 1970 and there are no answers for Q, U, V or X. Every other letter has a correct answer. We are only talking rushing or receiving touchdowns. No defensive or special teams scores.

10. Washington State Cougars: I really struggled with this one. I wanted to move the Cougars up to No. 9 because I think they have looked stronger each week since their season-opening loss to Portland State. But then again, they had that season-opening loss to Portland State. And that’s tough to forget. Win at Cal after the bye week, and you’ll get a much-deserved bump.
