The Pac-12 released its early television schedule on Thursday, and the times and TV information for two more of Washington State's games are now known. Read on for more.
Yes, the Apple Cup will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving. I've already seen a number of folks on Twitter raising concerns about the early start time on a weekday, but let's be real about this… it's the Apple Cup. They could play it at 3 a.m. and Martin would still be full. That game will be broadcast on either Fox or FX.
And WSU's home opener against Eastern Washington will be carried by the Pac-12 network and will kick off at noon on Sept. 8. So that makes four games total so far that we know the details for — WSU's season opener at BYU on Thursday, Aug. 30 will be televised by ESPN at 7:15 p.m., and their Sept. 14 game at UNLV will be televised by ESPN at 6 p.m.
Here's a PDF with all of the early TV games as announced by the conference today. As noted in the release, TV and kickoff information for the rest of the schedule will be announced 6-12 days before the day of the games.
All for now.
