New, comments

The Cougars now head to Tempe to face Arizona State

NCAA Football: UCLA at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

For the fourth straight week, Washington State enters Monday coming off a win. The Cougars hung on to beat UCLA at home on Saturday, making it three straight wins to open Pac-12 play. If the Cougars are going to stay undefeated in the conference, they are going to have to overcome a serious hurdle.

WSU heads to the desert this week to take on Arizona State. The Cougars actually opened the game as a 7-point favorite. Clearly oddmakers forgot to factor in the curse of the desert the Cougars have been plagued by. Winning at either Arizona school has been a challenge, but especially against the Sun Devils.

Let’s see how well you remember the last time the Cougars came away with a win in Tempe.

Q1: Name the three Cougars to attempt at least one pass in that game.

Q2: Name the three Cougars to score a touchdown in that game.

Q3: Who was Arizona State’s head coach at the time?
