PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State has added Eastern Washington to its 2016 football schedule, Director of Athletics Bill Moos announced Tuesday.
The game is scheduled for Sept. 3, 2016 in Martin Stadium.
"We revived the series last year after more than 100 years and look forward to scheduling additional contests in the future," said Moos. "This is a game that is of great interest to fans throughout the Pacific Northwest, particularly in eastern Washington.
Washington State has won all three previous meetings in the series, including a 24-20 victory last season in Pullman, the first victory for Mike Leach as the Cougar head coach. The two other meetings saw the Cougars post wins of 46-0 and 73-0 in 1907 and 1908, respectively.
In addition to Eastern Washington the Cougars will also have a road game at Boise State, the first meeting between the schools since 2001, as part of the 2016 nonconference schedule.
