We've still got nothing official yet, but this is just about as good a confirmation as we'll get until BYU and/or WSU announce the date and time for their season-opening matchup. On Monday, Bill Moos said something was in the works, noting that he'd likely have an announcement that the all-Cougars matchup would be moved to the season-opening Thursday on ESPN.
More information can be found here, in our previous post. Remember: It's Mike Leach's first game back on the sidelines and he'll be facing his alma mater. Storylines galore!
Now, there's this.
BYU TV games so far: Washington St at BYU Thu, Aug 30, 10:15pm & BYU at Boise St Thu, Sept 20, 9pm, both on ESPN— Mike Humes (@MikeHumesESPN) May 16, 2012
Humes is a college sports publicist at ESPN. I doubt he'd just be throwing something out there all willy-nilly. While it may not be officially announced by either school, if ESPN is chiming in and saying this is happening, we're going to assume it's happening.
So there you go. A 10:15 p.m. ET start on the back-end of the ESPN opening-night doubleheader. Make plans accordingly.
Edit: WSU has confirmed the game time. Schedule for the season is below the jump.
