Washington State and Boise State will have a national television audience when the nonconference opponents clash at Martin Stadium Saturday night.

The 7:30 p.m. game will air on ESPN’s flagship station, BSU announced on Twitter Sunday morning. ESPN2 and ESPNU were also in the running to show the second game in as many years between the Cougars and Broncos.

WSU last appeared on ESPN in the 2016 Holiday Bowl. The Cougars’ season opener was broadcasted on FS1, though the station waited for an extra innings baseball game to finish before switching over to a 31-0 WSU rout of Montana State.

WSU and BSU met last year in Boise, where the Mountain West Broncos edged out the Pac-12 Cougars 31-28. BSU also won its Saturday opener, 24-13 against Troy.
