Sellout crowd on hand for regional battle between Washington State, Eastern Washington

September 16, 2018

PULLMAN – The Cougars and Eagles drew a sellout crowd to Washington State’s Martin Stadium for the fifth-ever meeting between the in-state foes.

WSU reported ticket sales at 32,952, which makes Saturday’s game the 13th sellout at Martin Stadium since the beginning of the 2012 season. It comes one week after the Cougars announced an attendance figure of just 26,141 for the home opener against San Jose State – an 8 p.m. start time in Pullman.

The Cougars had less than 100 of their allotted tickets available as of Friday afternoon, athletic director Pat Chun reported. WSU sold out two home games last year, against Stanford in the 2017 home finale, and against USC in an early-season meeting that pitted the No. 5 Trojans against the No. 16 Cougars.
