>> Washington State comes into this weekend’s slate of Conference games looking to snap a two-game losing streak, as the Cougars dropped back-to-back home contests last weekend against Southern California and UCLA. WSU enters the week with a 13-6 record overall and a 3-5 mark in Pac-12 games.
>> The Cougars have been road warriors this season, as Washington State stands at 6-1 in true road games. One more road win for WSU this season would secure a winning record in road contests for the Cougs. It would mark the first time that the Cougars have posted a winning record on the road in consecutive seasons since the 1977-78 and 1978-79 campaigns.
>> WSU will be looking to extend its winning streak on the road to five games this Friday when the Cougars battle the Sun Devils in Tempe. Washington State has won each of its last four road games, which includes a sweep at Oregon State and then-No. 21/18 Oregon just less than two weeks ago. The last time Washington State won five straight on the road came during the 2014-15 season.
>> This Friday’s matchup between Washington State and Arizona State will be the 68th all-time meeting between the two schools. ASU leads the all-time series 49-19, though WSU won the last meeting 65-58 on Feb. 18, 2022 at Beasley Coliseum to snap an 11-game losing streak to the Sun Devils.
>> The Cougs will be looking for their first win at Arizona State since Feb. 1, 2013. Coupled with last season’s home win over the Sun Devils, Washington State will also be seeking back-to-back wins over ASU for the first time since the 2012-13 season when WSU swept the three-game season series Arizona State.
