"That's fantastic. Being on ABC means great exposure for our kids and for recruiting," WSU Head Coach Bill Doba said. "I believe we have a good product and people like to watch us. Having four selections by ABC reflects our popularity."
Fox Sports Net and Turner Sports will announce their early Pac-10 selections June 1. ESPN already has picked the Cougars' Sept. 3 season opener at New Mexico for live broadcast.
In addition to the Colorado and Washington games, ABC will broadcast WSU's road game at Arizona Sept. 25 and a Dads' Day clash with defending national champion USC at Martin Stadium Oct. 30.
The Arizona game, originally set for Oct. 2, was moved to Sept. 25 to accommodate the broadcast.
ABC picked up four games featuring Washington State and USC, while no other Pac-10 team was scheduled for more than two. An additional five conference games will be selected 12 or six days prior to the contest.
"It's a credit to what the football program has accomplished and where we think we are headed in the future," WSU Director of Athletics Jim Sterk said.
WSU's 2004 ABC Schedule:
Sept. 11 Colorado in Seattle
Sept. 25 Arizona at Tucson
Oct. 30 USC at Pullman
Nov. 20 Washington at Pullman
WSU set for lots of TV
