Washington State University lost an ugly game to Stanford - final score 55-17. Watch how this dismayed Coug fan reacts in the fourth quarter. (Photo, screen grab from ESPN. Video link below)

We understand his dismay, but who is this WSU popcorn man?

I have several questions after a day of college football in Seattle: Will WSU's quarterbacks survive the season? Will UW's 4 and 0 record survive after Stanford gets to them? Who is popcorn man?

The Coug-Cardinal game was ugly if you're a Washington State fan. By now you know the final score was 55-17 at CenturyLink Field.

Stanford put up more than 550 yards of total offense behind 286 yards passing and three touchdowns from quarterback Kevin Hogan, who played just three quarters.

What happened in the fourth quarter is fascinating a lot of people on social media. Most fans had left by then, but not a guy holding a foam WSU Coug head.

It's the way he ate/wore his popcorn that caught the attention of ESPN cameras.

Watch this video from ESPN of WSU popcorn man.

Some called him the WSU player of the game. The ESPN guys called him the MVP.

Who is he? Anyone know?


Oh, and GO HAWKS!!!
