It's finally here. Finally, finally, FINALLY. The Cougars are in Alabama to take on the Auburn Tigers in a game that most expect WSU to lose. Well, except for our own fans, who overwhelmingly picked a WSU upset in our poll yesterday.
We've covered the crap out of the game -- here, if somehow you missed it -- so I'm not going to rehash all that here. There's a little potential wrinkle tonight: There has been some lightning across the south today, causing the BYU/Virginia game to be delayed for more than two hours. Why do you care about BYU/Virginia? Because that's the game that precedes WSU/Auburn on ESPNU, and it now is going to run smack dab into the 4 p.m. PDT time slot.
Not to worry: It looks like ESPN is going to move over to WSU/Auburn at kickoff.
