Hoping to catch Wisconsin at Martin Stadium in 2014?
Well, that's not going to happen.
But you can see the Cougars play a “home game” against Rutgers in 2014 at CenturyLink Field on Friday, August 29. WSU returns the favor with a game at Rutgers on Sept. 12, 2015.
In turn, WSU's home-and-home series against Wisconsin, originally scheduled for 2014 (in Pullman) and 2015 (in Madison), has been pushed back to 2022 (in Madison) and 2023 (in Pullman) by way of a “mutual agreement.”
“Adding two BCS opponents to those already on future nonconference schedules benefits our program and is sure to be appealing to our fans,” said athletic director Bill Moos in a statement. “Our 2014 schedule also allows us to bring five quality Pac-12 games (Arizona, USC, Cal, Oregon and Washington) to Pullman to showcase our newly completed facilities.”
The latter part of that quote seems to imply that WSU doesn't plan to move any of its Pac-12 games to CenturyLink Field in 2014, as they have for the past two seasons (and will again this year, with Stanford visiting the CLink).
Washington State women's basketball team got its first ever win against a Big Ten team and they did it on the road, pulling away from Wisconsin on a historical night for April Cook. And Post Falls grad Katelyn Loper has a monster game for Hofstra.
Gonzaga’s semifinal opponent in the Maui Invitational will be Wisconsin, which edged Arizona 65-61 late Monday night.
The Badgers (3-0) led 13-0 before Arizona scored. However, the Wildcats battled all the way back to tie it at 45 and they even took the lead on several occasions.
Wisconsin guard Trevon Hughes scored 24 points and forward Keaton Nankivil had two dunks in the closing minutes.
