Washington State returned from playing at Stanford and for the first time in a long time, the Cougars returned with a win. Playing on the farm has not been kind to WSU in recent seasons.. But, that recent history wasn't evident on Saturday as the Cougars dominated Stanford.

That makes for back-to-back dominating wins against Oregon and Stanford, formerly the bullies of the Pac-12 North. Beating both teams in the same season is a feat on its own, especially in back-to-back weeks.

This all leads us to the trivia of the week.

Q1: Who was Stanford's starting quarterback the last time the Cougars beat the Cardinal on the road?

Q2: Who led WSU is receiving that game?

Q3: What movie won best picture the year the Cougars last beat Oregon and Stanford in the same season?
