After the other 10 previous members of the Pac-12 agreed to move to difference conferences beginning with the 2024 fall sports season, WSU and Oregon State entered a football scheduling agreement with the Mountain West Conference beginning next season that helps the Cougars and Beavers fill out their schedules but does not include them as part of the league.

Washington State is also continuing its Apple Cup rivalry with the UW Huskies, with the two meeting at the neutral site of Seattle’s Lumen Field on Saturday, Sept. 14 before beginning a normal home-and-home series in 2025 where they will alternate hosting at their own stadiums. The two programs have an agreement to continue the series through 2028.
