WSU vs. Stanford on Sept. 5 is slated for a 5 p.m. kickoff.
The Cougar Gridiron Classic, Sept. 12 against Hawaii at Qwest Field, will get underway at 4 p.m.
The Sept. 19 tilt against SMU kicks off at 2 p.m.
None of the three has yet been officially selected for broadcast. The first two games, Stanford and Hawaii, have starting times that would fit into broadcast schedule parameters. Barring unforeseen change, the SMU game will not be available for broadcast, as detailed in the CF.C article from last month here.
Games selected for broadcast generally fall into three windows -- early June for national picks, June-July-August for regional or institutional picks, and 12- and 6-day windows prior to the game during the season.
Both FSN and ABC/ESPN for '09 have kept open a larger than customary bank of 12- or 6-day window selections before the game, indicating this year a desire to work more flexibility into the scheduling based on how the season plays out.
Versus, which will broadcast five Pac-10 games this season, look to make all of their Pac-10 selections this season during the in-season 12-day windows, a change from last year when the carrier selected their slate before the season got underway.
The Cougs' game against Notre Dame, in San Antonio on Oct. 31, is the fourth game for which a start time has been set. It will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the West Coast and will be televised nationally by NBC.
Washington State's football schedule will be continually updated here with the latest broadcast and start times.
