PULLMAN – Some more late nights will be on the horizon for Washington State football fans.

WSU learned times and television networks for four additional football games on Thursday, when the Pac-12 released its early 2018 TV selections. At least two of the games will keep the Cougars and their fans up past 10 p.m.

Following the Sept. 1 season opener at Wyoming’s War Memorial Stadium, a 12:35 p.m. kickoff that will be televised by CBS Sports Network, the Cougars return home on Sept. 8 to play San Jose State in a Pac-12 Networks game that’s slated to kick off at 8 p.m.

WSU then plays host to Eastern Washington on Sept. 15 in a game that will begin at 5 p.m. and also air on the Pac-12 Networks.

Next, WSU travels to Los Angeles for a prime-time ESPN showdown with USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Stadium. The Cougars and Trojans will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21.

FOX will again air the annual Apple Cup rivalry game between WSU and Washington – a 5:30 p.m. game that will be played on Friday, Nov. 23 at Martin Stadium.

Times and television networks for home games against Utah (Sept. 29), Oregon (Oct. 20), Cal (Nov. 3) and Arizona (Nov. 17), in addition to road games against Oregon State (Oct. 6), Stanford (Oct. 27) and Colorado (Nov. 10) haven’t been set.

All remaining television selections and times will be made six to 12 days in advance of a given game.

Pac-12 picks: A smaller slate this weekend means a better chance for perfection

UPDATED: 6:09 p.m.
