WSU men to play Arizona, UCLA just once in 2021-22

SAN FRANCISCO — The Pac-12 Conference announced Tuesday a new 10-year annual rotation of men's basketball conference opponents to begin with the 2021-22 season.

With the unveiling of the new rotation, the league also revealed the home-away matchups and dates for early conference games as part of the league’s 20-game schedule for 2021-22.

Ten of the 12 early conference games will take place during a four-day span around the 2021 Pac-12 Football Championship Game on Friday, Dec. 3.

Washington State's early conference games will be Dec. 1 at Arizona State and then Dec. 4 vs. USC in Pullman. Further 2021-22 league schedule details will be announced at later dates.

WSU will play Arizona just once, at home, and play UCLA just once, on the road. The Cougars will play the other nine teams home and away.

The annual schedule rotation is meant to ensure balance and equity across the league's 12 programs and venues over the course of the next decade.

The new 10-year rotation will begin for the 2021-22 season and extend through 2030-31, featuring a pair of mirrored five-year segments (2021-22 to 2025-26, 2026-27 to 2030-31) with venues flipped for the early conference games and single-play opponents.

A prior 10-year rotation was implemented for the 2011-12 season, the league's first after expansion to 12 members, and completed during the recent 2020-21 campaign, the league's inaugural 20-game conference season.
