PULLMAN – The sun came out for Washington State’s second day game of the 2016 season, and temperatures soared as well.

The thermometer said 63 degrees when WSU and Arizona kicked off the 1 p.m. game on Saturday, Nov. 5, which made the game the second-warmest ever played by the Cougars at home in the month of November.

The record was set Nov. 13, 1999 against USC, which was played on a sweltering 74-degree day. The Cougars have been keeping temperature records since 1982.
