HONOLULU -- Washington State will pay $300,000 for canceling its 2011 game at Hawaii.

Hawaii athletic director Jim Donovan says he received a letter last week from Washington State, canceling the final contest of a three-game series between the schools.

WSU cited uncertain changes in the Pac-10 scheduling. The cancellation fee will need to be paid within 30 days of the scheduled game, which was set for Nov. 26, 2011, at Aloha Stadium.

The teams met in November in Honolulu and the Cougars host the Warriors in Seattle on Saturday.

The Cougars aren't the only team to cancel a date against the Warriors in recent years. Michigan State paid $250,000 to get out its 2007 matchup. Hawaii went 12-0 that year before losing to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
