WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Four Washington State University football games, two road and two home, have been selected as part of the Pac-12 Conference's early television selections, the conference announced June 14.
WSU, which previously has announced television broadcasts for its games at BYU and UNLV, also will host Washington in the Apple Cup Friday, Nov. 23, in a game televised by either FOX or FX at 12:30 p.m. The final network decision will be determined either 12 or six days in advance of the contest.
The Cougars will open their season Thursday, Aug. 30, at BYU in a game televised by ESPN with a 7:15 p.m. (PT) start. It will mark the first time since the 2005 season, a 55-21 win at Nevada (Sept. 9), WSU has been televised by ESPN. The Cougars did open the 2006 campaign at Auburn in a game televised by ESPN2.
On Sept. 8, WSU hosts Eastern Washington University in the 2012 home opener.
