Hot Cougar Action: A busy day for Cougar sports

Saturday will be a busy day for WSU as the football team and both the men's and women's basketball teams will be in action.


If on a recent Saturday you've found yourself thinking "hey a WSU football game is great, but I need more Cougar sports" then you will really enjoy today.

Basketball season season tips off today and both the WSU men's and women's basketball teams will be in action. The busy Saturday starts with the women's basketball team taking on Minnesota in the Best Buy Classic. The game, which is at Minnesota, tips at 10 a.m. PT but will not be on TV.

Not long after the women's game wraps up, the men's basketball team will open its season against Eastern Washington. In previous seasons, we'd be stuck watching armless players on gametracker, but today's game will tip at 4:30 p.m. PT and be broadcast on Pac-12 Washington.

Finally, the football team will wrap up the day with its game against UCLA. The Cougs and Bruins will meet at 7:30 p.m. PT with television coverage on ESPN2.

Combined, that adds up to two gamethreads and nearly 10 hours of Cougar athletics.
