The Cougars play at Oregon State November 7th before hosting Oregon and then traveling to Stanford. Following Washington’s visit November 27th, WSU will travel to play Southern Cal and finish December 12th against Cal.

The Pac-12 will host its championship game December 8th and for teams that don’t play in it, there will be a cross-over game to play North vs. South of the same seed. So the No. 2 team in the North will play the No. 2 team in the South and so on.
