The Washington State Cougars have finalized their non-conference football schedule through 2018, WSU Director of Athletics Bill Moos announced Wednesday evening.
The Cougars finalized their future slate with the addition of a home game against Montana State on Sept. 16, 2017.
Over the next five seasons, Washington State will face only one power conference opponent — Rutgers. The Cougars host the Scarlet Knights in Seattle in 2014 and travel to Piscataway in 2015.
WSU will face a team from the Football Championship Subdivision each season — Portland State (2014-15), Eastern Washington (2016, 2018), and Montana State (2017).
“I believe our nonconference schedules over the next five years are a great compliment to our Pac-12 schedules,” said Moos. “We have been able to secure a home-and-home series against Big Ten opponent Rutgers, maintain regional matchups, resume our series against Boise State for the first time since 2001, and also provide Cougar fans with seven home games in four of the next five seasons.”
