WSU Notebook: A day game on the schedule?!

WHAT’S THIS, A DAY GAME for the Cougars?! After starting their first seven games at 5 p.m. or later, Washington State will finally see its first day game of the 2014 season when they play host to No. 16 Arizona in Pullman at 3 p.m. on Oct. 25.

Both teams will be coming off a bye week.

Arizona (5-1) suffered their first loss of the season this past Saturday to USC. A game-winning Wildcat field goal attempt from 36 yards sailed wide right as time expired in the 28-26 loss.

WSU-Arizona will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.

Washington State (2-5) will return to the practice field on Wednesday.

They practice again Thursday before taking the day off Friday, and then they’re back on the practice field Saturday.

CF.C has heard from prep coaches about members of the WSU staff out on the recruiting trail and at their high schools this week.

If past years are any indication, all WSU coaches will be back in Pullman for the Wednesday and Thursday practices, then some will likely again head back out Thursday night recruiting and be at Friday night games before returning to Pullman for Saturday's practice.

  • WSU this season has played three games with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff, one at 7 p.m., one at 6 p.m. and two at 5 p.m.
