Washington State will be featured on HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’-like college football series

Mike Leach will soon be sharing the same space with Tony Soprano, Omar Little and Issa Rae.

HBO announced that Washington State will be one of four schools featured in its 24/7 College Football series in October. Joining the Cougars will be Florida, Penn State and fellow Pac-12 Member Arizona State.

Washington State will be featured in the final episode of the series on October 23, documenting the team’s preparations for Colorado. The Cougars play host to the Buffaloes on Oct. 19.

“This is a great time to be a Washington State Cougar and we are thrilled to partner with HBO Sports’ 24/7 franchise to give our alumni and fans a behind the scenes look at our football program and Head Coach Mike Leach,” Washington State Athletic Director Pat Chun said in a press release.
