Cougars will face Portland State next season


One note that will be in the S-R tomorrow.

Washington State announced some schedule changes for the 2008 season, adding Big Sky Conference member Portland State, coached by former NFL head coach Jerry Glanville, in Pullman on Sept. 20.

According to athletic director Jim Sterk, the Cougars are still looking for an opponent in Seattle on Aug. 30, after an agreement with the University of Utah was cancelled by mutual agreement.

Sterk said ESPN is helping to arrange a new opponent and the game would be televised nationally. The other two non-conference games are road trips to Baylor and Hawaii.

One school that won’t be on the schedule is Idaho. The Vandals will probably appear only once every two or three years, according to Sterk.
