The BYU Cougars and Washington State Cougars have scheduled a 2012-13 home-and-home football series, KitsapSun.com has reported.
BYU will host Washington State at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo in 2012 and travel to face WSU at Martin Stadium in Pullman in 2013. Exact dates were not announced.
Washington State athletic director Bill Moos also said that he has had preliminary scheduling talks “…with such schools as Nebraska, Michigan State and Texas A&M about playing home-and-home.”
BYU leads the all-time series against Washington State 2-1. BYU won the first meeting 38-36 in the 1981 Holiday Bowl. In 1989 and 1990, the schools split two games in Provo.
BYU now has a full schedule of 12 games for the 2012 season. In 2013, BYU needs three more games and can schedule a fourth under the Hawaii Exemption.
Washington State needed a third non-conference game for 2012 when Utah joined the Pac-12. WSU also hosts Eastern Washington and travels to UNLV.
