Seasons announced for early WSU football games

Good morning Coug fans. We’ve made it to the official start of summer, although the weather in my neck of the woods suggests we’re still late March/early April. I could expect something from this global warming now.

Whatever the case, it’s that time of year when spring sports either come to an end or move into the championship phase. WSU has some track and field athletes who extend their seasons into championship meets, and their star tennis player was eliminated from the NCAA championships in the quarterfinals. Great season, Michaela Bayerlova!

So it’s the perfect time of year to talk about college football, and the leagues know it. That’s why, in partnership with their TV shot callers, they’ve announced some kick-off times for preseason non-conference games and a Thursday night conference game . Here is WSU’s schedule (all times PT):

  • September 3 vs. Idaho: 6:30 p.m., Pac-12 network
  • September 10 in Wisconsin: 12:30 p.m. Fox
  • September 17 vs. Colorado State: 2 p.m., Pac-12 network
  • October 27 (Thursday) vs. Utah: 7 p.m., FS1

This Wisconsin game is a good kick-off time if you believe in the full-body clock theory. I wouldn’t mind a 9am PT kickoff since I enjoy college football with my balls and toast, but I suppose Alabama in Texas is a better Big Noon kickoff game. The 2:00 p.m. kickoff against Colorado State is a throwback to the good old days of the ’80s and ’90s, except this time the game is televised. And a Labor Day Weekend night game against their border rivals? Mmm, it’s ok. But I live nearby.

Also: Thursday night football. To discuss.

Kick-off times for the remainder of the schedule are TBDBTVPTWPOMSDBFCS (set by TV partners two weeks in advance, or maybe six days because fans come second).

Also, and I don’t know if this was already announced or at least known: October 1st vs Cal is homecoming so expect a day game, and November 12th vs Arizona State is family weekend (formerly Dad’s weekend).

So get your affairs in order, mark your calendars, set up childcare and reserve those RVs. We’re less than 100 days to Cougar Football Saturday.
