WSU non-conference schedule for next 5 years

THE COUGARS will play seven home games in four of the five next seasons, WSU announced today. And Washington State has announced their non-conference opponents on the gridiron for the next five years.

WSU will play seven home games in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018, with six home games on the 2015 schedule. Since 2000, WSU has played seven home games (including The Seattle Game) only three times, with the last coming in 2008.

The non-conference schedules for the next five seasons:

Aug. 28 vs. Rutgers (Seattle)
Sept. 6 at Nevada
Sept. 13 Portland State

Sept. 5 Portland State
Sept. 12 at Rutgers
Sept. 19 Wyoming

Sept. 3 Eastern Washington
Sept. 10 at Boise State
Sept. 17 Idaho

Sept. 2 Nevada
Sept. 9 Boise State
Sept. 16 Montana State

Sept. 1 at Wyoming
Sept. 8 San Jose State
Sept. 15 Eastern Washington

Washington State also has BYU (2019) and Wisconsin (2022, 2023) on future schedules.

It's possible the Cougs could after this season would hold all seven of those games in Pullman vs. six at Martin Stadium, along with the Seattle Game. Bill Moos has definitively said the Cougs will not play a Pac-12 opponent in Seattle going forward. He's also said he will revisit the subject of playing the Seattle Game at all.

"When I first got here, we didn't have TV money and the Pac-12 money," Moos said earlier this month in Spokane. "We needed to build a cash flow. I decided to schedule Oregon State and Oregon games in Seattle because we needed the money. I scheduled the Auburn games as away games for $1.2 million. That's not the case now, so we're going to reevaluate playing games in Seattle. I think it's served its purpose."
