2017 Washington State Cougars Football Schedule & Analysis
Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 Washington State Cougars football schedule
2017 Washington State Cougars Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario
With five straight home games to start the season, Wazzu gets by Boise State and shocks USC on the way to a 5-0 start. But the road game payback hits hard, going to Oregon to start a run of three road games in four weeks, and and five in the final seven dates. If all goes well, the Cougars win the road dates at Cal, Arizona and Utah, split the away games at Oregon and Washington, and take down Stanford in Pullman to go 9-3.
2017 Washington State Cougars Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario
The Cougars lose to Boise State and USC, only going 3-2 in September – or a disastrous 2-3 if something else goes wrong. And then the wheels come off on the road, losing at Oregon, Arizona, Utah and Washington, and without doubling up at home with wins over Colorado and Stanford. Even if Wazzu starts slowly, though, it’ll almost certainly be no worse than 6-6 considering the talent returning.
