WSU luring big-time foes to Pullman

Washington State is upgrading its nonconference schedule with some tough foes, and more may be coming.

But the good news for the Cougars is they also are coming to Pullman.

Washington State has signed home-and-home game contracts with Boise State and BYU. They previously announced an agreement with Wisconsin.

From Howie Stalwick:

BYU visits Washington State in 2013, followed by Wisconsin in 2014 and Boise State in 2017.

The Cougars play at BYU next year, travel to Wisconsin in 2015 and visit Boise State in 2016.

[Athletic director Bill Moos] said he's engaged in "preliminary" talks with such schools as Nebraska, Michigan State and Texas A&M about playing home-and-home.

Those teams figure to draw crowds and inspire sellouts. Now the Cougars just need to makes sure the team in the home locker room is going to be a threat to send the home crowd home happy.
