First Washington State University's undefeated football team caught the fancy of voters for the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN weekly polls, boosting WSU into the Top 20 this week.
Now ESPN sees the Cougars as one of the nation's up and coming football teams. The national sports cable carrier is picking up WSU head coach Mike Price's weekly press conference for live telecasting, beginning today, Oct. 16.
ESPN has made arrangements to carry Price's conference live at 1:00 p.m. PDT by moving the media gathering to WSU's public television facilities, where the interview can be up-linked to ESPN.
Officials at ESPN have indicated they would like to air Price's weekly press conference live for at least the next three weeks.
