NCAA Football: Arizona at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Football season just ended, but it’s never too early to look ahead to next season... Or at least next season’s Homecoming game.

On Tuesday, Washington State announced the dates for their Homecoming and Dad’s Weekend games in Pullman, and they’re taking place on back-to-back weekends in October. The ceremonies start with the Homecoming game on October 3 against Cal. Then, the next weekend, the Cougs will host Utah on October 10 for Dad’s Weekend.

It might seem odd to have the two biggest annual promotional weekends on consecutive games, but WSU’s scheduled didn’t really give to program any choice. The games are traditionally held somewhere in the middle of the season, but the Cougs only host three games between weeks four and 11 of the college football schedule, with the third coming on Halloween night against Arizona State. It was probably a smart move to avoid adding a swarm of dads to the Halloween festivities on campus, especially on a gameday.

The dates have been set, but the school has yet to announce the major concert that traditionally takes place on Dad’s Weekend. However, the Beasley Coliseum Twitter account may have given a pretty big hint last week.
