'Alumni weekend is always a highlight to the fall season,' said WSU Head Coach Donnie Marbut, who enters his third season leading the Cougars. 'It's a perfect time to renew friendships with former players and families, enjoy a great college football weekend in Pullman, and with the auction and golf tournament, benefit the Cougar baseball program.'

The Cougar Alumni Game takes place Saturday, Sept. 9, at 9 a.m. as the Cougar alumni face the 2007 Cougar Baseball team, otherwise known as the 'rookies.' Following the game the Alumni Banquet/Auction takes place from 1- 3 p.m. This is a chance to meet the 2007 Cougar Baseball team and participate in live and silent auctions with proceeds benefiting Cougar baseball.
At 4 p.m., the venue shifts to Martin Stadium as the WSU football team opens its 2006 home schedule against Idaho.
The weekend concludes Sunday morning at the University of Idaho golf course with a 9 a.m. shot-gun start for the Cougar Baseball Golf Tournament.
