PULLMAN — The Pac-12 Conference announced Friday revised conference-only schedules for the upcoming season, with the Cougars playing 10 contests, five home and five road. The Pac-12 CEO Group also approved conference-only scheduling plans for men’s & women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, and men’s & women’s cross country, with competition to start no earlier than the weekend of Sept. 26.

“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans continues to be our guiding principle as we navigate a path to our fall seasons” Washington State Athletic Director Pat Chun said. “We are appreciative of Commissioner (Larry) Scott, the Pac-12 staff and everyone involved across our 12 institutions for working collaboratively to create these schedules. We are optimistic these schedules put us in the best possible position to have our fall seasons.”

The Cougars are scheduled to begin the season with back-to-back home games at Martin Stadium, Sept. 26 vs. Utah and Oct. 3 vs. Oregon.

WSU opens its road slate with a single game at UCLA in Pasadena on Oct. 10, before returning to Pullman to host California, Oct. 17. The Cougars will have their only bye of the season Oct. 24.

A pair of road contests open the post-bye week portion of the schedule, with WSU playing the first of two Friday contests, Oct. 30 at Stanford, followed by a Nov. 7 contest at USC. The annual Apple Cup has WSU hosting Washington Friday, Nov. 27 in Martin Stadium. Times and television schedules will be announced.
