WSU is operating under a little different schedule this week which means press conference Friday.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

On a usual week, Mike Leach and WSU players meet the media on Monday. Coming off the bye week and with an upcoming Thursday game, the Cougars are working with a different schedule this week.

The staff is ignoring the days of the week and instead treating next Thursday like a Saturday. That means that instead of meeting the media next Monday, Mike Leach and three players held their press conferences on Thursday. Oregon, ASU and Halloween were among the popular topics.

The event, which follows a normal practice, is a full-contact scrimmage for the team's younger players.

If you’re thinking about skipping the Cougs game on Halloween night to take the kiddos trick-or-treating it’s time to reconsider. The Halloween at Washington State University Carnival will not only allow you to watch the game without missing out on Halloween, but it might actually be more fun than ringing door bells in the search of candy.
