Washington State Football Schedule 2020 Prediction, Best Case Scenario
9-3: The Cougars aren’t exactly pushing themselves in non-conference play. New head coach Nick Rolovich is welcomed in with at Utah State, Houston and Idaho, and a 3-0 start before opening the Pac-12 season with a win at Oregon State.
It’s going to be a fight, but after at least splitting the home games against Cal and Utah, the run of three road games in four dates – all against teams that didn’t go bowling last year – dates comes out strong with at least two of those going to Wazzu. Realistically, there are a few tough losses along the way – like at home against Oregon – but Rolovich takes the Apple Cup at home against Washington.
Washington State Football Schedule 2020 Prediction, Worst Case Scenario
5-7: There’s a stumble against Houston or at Utah State in the first few weeks, and the Cougars drop the Pac-12 opener at Oregon State. Throw in tough losses to good Cal and Utah teams, and it’s uh-oh time.
There are enough winnable games to build up a decent base, but it comes down to having to beat both Oregon and Washington at home to go bowling, and it doesn’t happen.
