WSU has its first sellout game of the season -- the Oct. 3 contest against Oregon. Only standing room tickets remain.
Remember last season’s overtime nail-biter in Eugene, Ore. that saw Washington State trump Oregon 45-38 on a Robert Lewis touchdown from Luke Falk?
So do lots of Coug fans, apparently. As of Monday afternoon, the WSU football team’s highly anticipated Oct. 1 rematch against the Ducks at Martin Stadium has been declared a sellout, the Cougars’ athletic department announced.
This is WSU’s first sellout of the season at Martin Stadium, which has a capacity of 32,952. Last year, the Cougars sold out two games at Martin Stadium, against Oregon State and Arizona State.
“Both season and individual game tickets have been selling quickly,” Matt Zollinger, WSU’s Assistant Athletic Director, Ticket Sales and Service said in a press release. “Oregon will be a sellout and we are over 90 percent capacity for both Eastern Washington and the Apple Cup. I expect all our games to continue trending in the right direction with the goal of selling out all seven games this season.”
