California Game Selected for TV
July 9, 2008
PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University and FSN Northwest announced today that an agreement has been reached to televise the Cougars' Sept. 6 football game with California, WSU Director of Athletics Jim Sterk said. Game time for the California contest, WSU's Pacific-10 Conference and Martin Stadium opener, has been set for 3:30 p.m.
Four other Cougar football games have already been selected for television, including the Cougars' season-opener against Oklahoma State (Aug. 30) at Qwest Field in Seattle. The Cougar Gridiron Classic, presented by Washington's Beef Producers, will be televised live by FSN with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff.
FSN will televise two additional Cougar home games: the game against USC, Oct. 18, which is scheduled for a 12:30 p.m. start; and the annual Apple Cup against Washington, Nov. 22, televised by FSN with a noon start from Pullman. The lone televised road contest at this point comes when the Cougars travel to Waco, Texas to face Baylor, Sept. 13. That game will also be televised by FSN with an 11:30 a.m. local (9:30 a.m. PT) start.
Both ABC and FSN will select additional games during the course of the 2008 season, with announcements made six or 12 days in advance of the games.
Prior to the 2007 season, the Cougars had four games selected for national or regional television. Following six- and 12-day selections throughout the year, WSU ended the season with 10 of its 12 games being televised.
Season tickets, along with tickets for the Cougar Gridiron Classic, are currently on sale. Tickets are available online at www.wsucougars.com or by phone at 1-800-GO-COUGS. Tickets to the Cougar Gridiron classic are also available through all Ticketmaster outlets.
