PULLMAN – Washington State will avoid a third straight 7:30 p.m. or later kickoff, but the Cougars won’t appear on national television for the first time in five weeks when they visit Arizona on Oct. 28.

It was announced Monday morning that the game in Tucson will start at 6:30 p.m. PDT and air on the Pac-12 Networks.

WSU, which rose as high as No. 8 in the national rankings before Friday’s loss to Cal last week, had played on ESPN or FOX for four straight weeks. But three of the Cougars’ last four games also started at either 7:30 or 7:45 p.m., including Saturday’s home game against Colorado, which is slated to start at 7:45.

The Cougars have won their last two games in Tucson, beating the Wildcats 24-17 in 2013 and 45-42 in 2015.
