HONOLULU — Washington State will pay $300,000 for canceling its 2011 game at Hawaii.
Hawaii athletic director Jim Donovan says he received a letter last week from Washington State, canceling the final contest of a three-game series between the schools.
WSU cited uncertain changes in the Pac-10 scheduling. The cancellation fee will need to be paid within 30 days of the scheduled game, which was set for Nov. 26, 2011, at Aloha Stadium.
The teams met in November in Honolulu and the Cougars host the Warriors in Seattle on Saturday.
