WSU Football: Arizona Game Set for Morning Kickoff

The Washington State Cougars and Arizona Wildcats will kick off their contest in two Saturdays (Nov. 16) in the am, at 11:00 am pst, 12:00 pm Tuscon time.

Many Cougar faithful have scrutinized the schedule so far this year, mostly focused on the late night starts that have so often been picked up by ESPN or FoxSports 1. While it is not a home game, it is an early start which should appease the angry folk, at least for a week.

The game is going to be picked up on Pac-12 Networks, so if you don’t get it with your provider, tough bones. On the other hand, ESPN has been an absolute nightmare for the Cougars recently so hopefully a change of scenery will help the Cougs to break free of the national attention and focus on the opponent.

Both teams are looking to snatch themselves a bowl game at the end of this season, but WSU needs the game just a little bit more right now.

    Until Halliday stops overthrowing wide open receivers on medium to deep routes downfield the
    Cougs are going nowhere. Worse no better draft picks.

  • Interrogator

    I saw PROGRESS in the last game when Halliday only threw ONE interception. I know he was trying real, real hard to not throw any. This next game, to him, it will be equally important, but yes, I agree with your comment about hitting the WR’s like Dominique Williams. I really believe in Connor. This will be a good game for both him AND his WR’s. Why, because he’s made up his mind…

    And, I think those on field TD “celebrations” this time will be somewhat tempered……..till they win.
