Third straight year for Cougars in Seattle
PULLMAN, Wash. -- For the third consecutive season, the Washington State Cougars will play a non-conference "home" game in Seattle, WSU athletic officials announced Wednesday.
WSU will host Colorado in Seahawks Stadium Sept. 11, Athletic Director Jim Sterk and coach Bill Doba said at a Seattle news conference.
The game is a makeup for one scheduled Sept. 15, 2001, that was canceled after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the East Coast.
It marks the third straight year the Cougars have played a non-conference game in the new stadium. In 2002, WSU opened in Seattle against Nevada. Last year, the Cougars played Idaho in Seattle to open the season.
The Cougars will open the 2004 season on the road in a Friday night game Sept. 3 at New Mexico in Albuquerque. The Cougars will play five home games at Pullman.
No game time has been announced for the Seattle game, pending negotiations that may result in a live telecast. The Seattle Mariners have a home game scheduled for 7 p.m. that day.
