WSU Monday morning trivia - California Bears edition

New, 51 comments
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's game week again for Washington State which means there is an actual opponent history to dig into for the weekly trivia contest. The only problem is the opponent is the California Golden Bears and yeah ... not exactly a recent history anyone wants to dig into. So, let's just pretend WSU won that game last year and everything was so swell we don't have to talk about it and can instead dig into trivia that does not involved missed 19-yard field goals. Yeah, let's do that.

Last week we talked about the alphabet and skill player touchdowns. Today let's mix the alphabet with passing touchdowns.

Q1: Name the WSU player with the most passing touchdowns by each letter of the alphabet since 1970. Nothing pre-1970 is included (sorry Bob Newman fans). The player doesn't necessarily have to be a quarterback either, just has to have thrown a passing touchdown.
