Cougars to play Beavers
at Qwest Field in 2011
PULLMAN - Washington State's 2011 football game against Oregon State will be played at Qwest Field in Seattle, WSU athletic director Bill Moos announced Thursday.
"Since arriving at Washington State, it has been my intent to bring a conference game to Qwest Field each year, preferably in October and with one of the Oregon schools," said Moos. "I am thrilled that the recently announced 2011 Pac-12 schedule was able to accommodate my wishes. Hopefully, ensuing schedules will provide the same opportunity."
The 2011 game against Oregon State will be played Oct. 22.
Last year WSU announced its 2011 game against UNLV would be played at Qwest Field. That game will now be played Sept. 10 in Martin Stadium.
