The most the Vandals scored? 38 in the 2000 win. … The last time the two met in Moscow was 1966. The Vandals were the home team in 1999 at Martin Stadium. … WSU receiver Michael Bumpus has 139 career receptions. He needs 10 to move into second alone on WSU’s list behind Hugh Campbell’s record of 176. … Alex Brink needs less than 100 passing yards to move into second all time at Washington State.
