Tough turnaround for Cougars, who must travel and play on same day

WACO, Texas -- The Washington State Cougars, coming off the most lopsided loss in school history, can't wait to get back on the football field. Literally.

The Cougars agreed Thursday to move up their scheduled Saturday morning game at Baylor to Friday at 5:30 p.m. PDT because of weather and travel problems related to Hurricane Ike.

A Thursday flight could not be arranged, so the Cougars are scheduled to take a 3 1/2 -hour flight out of Pullman on Friday and land in Waco, Texas, about 4 1/2 hours before kickoff.

Asked when the Cougars last played a road game on the same day they traveled (except to neighboring Idaho), athletic director Jim Sterk quipped, "Probably the last time they played Gonzaga." The Bulldogs dropped football in 1941.

Fox Sports said the game will be shown live on Fox College Sports and delayed to 11 p.m. on FSN. A video stream off the Baylor scoreboard screen and audio of the Bears' radio broadcast will be available free at wsucougars.com and baylorbears.com.

WSU coach Paul Wulff played down difficulties posed for his players by the last-minute travel and date changes.

"It's all how you handle it," Wulff said. "We're not going to really worry about it. ... We don't need to look at the fluff on the outside. We need to just play some football."

Baylor and the Cougars discussed rescheduling the game for Dec. 6 (the teams do not share bye weeks), but Wulff said he preferred playing Friday because the Cougars play at Hawaii on Nov. 29 and he did not want to lose a week of recruiting.
