PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University and FSN Northwest said an agreement has been reached to televise the Cougars' Oct. 4 football game at UCLA, WSU Director of Athletics Jim Sterk announced Monday. The UCLA contest is set for a 7:15 p.m. start.
The addition means WSU's first six contests of the 2008 campaign, and eight total for the season, have now been selected for television. Three 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 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 host the Oregon Ducks in a game scheduled for a 3:15 p.m. kickoff and broadcast on FSN Northwest.
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.
