The schedules for the 2020 UW Huskies and WSU Cougars football seasons have been released.

Heaps: Why WSU nailed its head coaching hire with Nick Rolovich

Washington State gets a break, in a sense, in that it will only have to play one Friday game – the annual Apple Cup against the Huskies, which will be at Martin Stadium in Pullman this year. Washington, meanwhile, will have an additional Friday game on Oct. 23 when it hosts Arizona.

WSU will open Pac-12 play on Sept. 26 at Oregon State, while UW will be on a bye that weekend before starting its conference slate on Oct. 3 at Oregon.

This will be the first year under new head coaches for both Washington and Washington State. Former UW defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake has succeeded Chris Petersen on Montlake, while Nick Rolovich was hired away from Hawaii earlier this week to replace Mike Leach, who left WSU for Mississippi State less than a week prior.
