PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University and FSN Northwest said an agreement has been reached to televise the Cougars' Oct. 11 football game at Oregon State, WSU Director of Athletics Jim Sterk announced Tuesday. The Oregon State contest is set for a 3:30 p.m. start.
The addition means WSU's first seven contests of the 2008 campaign, and nine total for the season, have now been selected for television. Four of the games have been or will be available in high definition on FSN HD, including the season-opener against Oklahoma State, along with future contests against UCLA, Oct. 4 with a 7:15 p.m. start, USC, Oct. 18, which is scheduled for a 12:30 p.m. start, and
the annual Apple Cup against Washington, Nov. 22, with a noon start from Pullman.
The Cougars next television appearance will be Saturday when they visit UCLA.
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 five 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.
