2010 WSU, Pac-10 schedule out


The Pac-10 has finally released its 2010 football schedule. There are no surprises with Washington State's schedule but there are a couple of anomalies. The Cougars play nine consecutive weeks to open the season, then have byes in two of the next four weeks, including Thanksgiving weekend. As previously reported, the Apple Cup is Dec. 4. Read on for the rest of the WSU schedule.


• WSU's season opens Sept. 4 at Oklahoma State, with the Cowboys coming off a 9-4 season, which includes a Cotton Bowl loss to Mississippi. Here's the entire WSU schedule (I don't have a link wher you can find the entire Pac-10 schedule as yet):

Sept. 4: at Oklahoma State

Sept. 11: Montana State

Sept. 18: at SMU

Sept. 25: USC

Oct. 2: at UCLA

Oct. 9: Oregon

Oct. 16: Arizona

Oct. 23: at Stanford

Oct. 30: at Arizona State

Nov. 6: bye

Nov. 13: at Oregon State

Nov. 20: Cal

Nov. 27: bye

Dec. 4 Washington

• As you can see, there is no game designated as a Seattle contest, but any information about that will probably come later. Also, the conference has three Thursday games slated to be on ESPN, including USC at Hawaii on Sept. 2, UCLA at Oregon on Oct. 21 and ASU at Arizona on Dec. 2. The UCLA at Texas on Sept. 25 has already been picked up by ABC while either ESPN or ESPN2 will take the Sept. 11 Stanford at UCLA game.


• That's it for now. We'll be back as events warrant. Until then ...
